Eastwood College recently launched a fantastic initiative reconnecting students with nature. A small botanical garden was inaugurated by the Minister of Environment, Mr. Fadi Jreissati, on their Kafarshima campus, with over 60 kinds of trees and plants that are native to our beautiful Lebanon.
Developed In collaboration with the NGO Green Hand Organization, this is a “pioneering project promoting beauty and knowledge and helping people realize how important it is to keep our country green and clean.”
Eastwood is the first college in Lebanon to have its own botanical garden and it involves an Alternative Diverse Education for Native Species (ADENS) program.
There are (too) few botanical gardens around the country, such gardens require a lot of care, dedication and time.
Thumbs up to all those involved and we hope it encourages other schools to show students the importance of nurturing our environment and make them more aware of the nature that surrounds us.
