In addition, an important part of the project is learning how to further process vegetables for sustainable nutrition. The trainers of the partner organisation FEYS, who conduct all educational units of the Junior Ranger Programme, impart this knowledge to the children in practical and theoretical teaching units in an uncomplicated and competent way. To do this, they regularly take part in various workshops with experts.
At the same time, the project garden on the association's premises, which the FEYS staff had planted during the first lockdown, was expanded and a large community garden was planted for the 10 trainers on the premises, which will secure their supply in the long term.
The environmental protection programme stands and falls with the security of our trainers, because they are largely involved on a voluntary basis and the Corona pandemic has also worsened their situation due to the loss of casual jobs in the tourism sector.
The project "Sustainable Nutrition for Children, Youth and Young Adults" started in April 2021 and was financially supported by the Lower Saxony Bingo Environmental Foundation until the end of September 2021.
