What could be tastier than fresh vegetables in summer? Only hand-grown vegetables. A rich harvest has ripened in the kindergarten “Spark”: peas, cucumbers, lettuce have ripened, zucchini and tomatoes are on the way. A municipal grant helped the preschool institution to acquire its own garden-garden, with the help of which a smart greenhouse was purchased. Now the guys are watching the life of plants, comparing, analyzing and collecting fruits grown in the beds.
Natalya Polyakovskaya, director of the Ogonyok kindergarten, spoke about the project.
In 2019, we won a grant from the head, and we purchased smart greenhouses for each group and a greenhouse complex for the street. This year we can see our results in full.
A smart greenhouse is a greenhouse designed for experimentation in a group room. Children plant, water, observe, it is computerized. Work is carried out from the second younger group, but children go to greenhouses older than 5-6 years. We tried to plant more crops. Cucumbers, zucchini and peas grew this year. Next year we will try to plant a pumpkin. And a radish. We already had the first crop of peas. Today there is a big crop of cucumbers. The next harvest is already waiting for tomatoes.
In addition to the greenhouse, we also have an orchard. There are no berries, but we have blossomed strawberries. You can grow anything you want with love and care.
