Planting Fun

This May when the Love Without Boundaries' education team visited the Believe In Me Too School, the teachers in China and our team from the US shared some ideas on school lessons. Our team had suggested that the children might enjoy growing plants.
A few weeks ago we received a photo of the plants that were ordered for the children. Initially we thought that the lesson idea had not been translated correctly, because the pots looked like painted eggs. They were certainly cute eggs, but somehow we thought the idea of watching a plant grow had been lost in translation.
Imagine our delight when we received the photo of thriving plants growing out of the eggs. You can also so easily imagine the wonder and fun the students experienced. It looks like we have master gardeners on our hands!

One of the many benefits in working with these schools is the exchange of knowledge. We all learned something here!!
