While volunteering on the gardening and landscaping project in Ethiopia, you can educate the students at a college in Addis Ababa about nature. Your volunteer work will both benefit the students in Addis Ababa, who can learn from you, and also the local population!
During the volunteer project, you will show the students at school how to grow their own vegetables. So, they will gain a deeper understanding of horticulture. Also, the students will understand the enormous value of their own, naturally grown fruits and vegetables.
Growing Plants: Understanding Nature and time to Relax for the students
Gardening is considered by many people to be a relaxing activity and in these days, it can be a lucrative activity too. This project can motivate the students to pursue a career as landscape architects and/ or garden designers to produce artistically creative designs for private garden spaces as well as public spaces.
In this project your duties may include, but not limited to:
- Teaching how to prepare the soil and finding the right seeds and plants
- Developing organic gardening
- Working with nature, and creating beautiful surroundings
- Understanding weeds
- Teaching integral life values – most notably, patience.
- Maximizing plants propagation
- Taking advantage of amenity horticulture
- Understanding plant care
- Keeping your plants healthy
- How to make the most of your garden
Working in this project you will get to leave your mark and improve the living conditions of people in some of the poorest areas of the city. At the same time, you will get to explore this fascinating country and witness the Ethiopia way of life. This project is for those who have green fingers and like the garden atmosphere.
