By cultivating the land near the school and maintaining the forest behind, Bloom Earth School is contributing to the holistic development of children through an integrated and multidisciplinary approach to understanding the natural environment. Students from every age learn from hands on experience about plant growth processes, soil, ecosystems, water, animal presence, for example. They witness life cycles following the seasons.
With age and experience, students increase their level of understanding on topics such as agricultural practices and food production, gain practical knowledge when cutting wood, weeding or working the land. They also acquire concentration, observation, perseverance, patience, the capacity for sustained efforts and a spirit of service. Produce from the cultivated plots are used by our kitchen in the preparation of the school's meals.
