During Earth Science Week 2015, Concordia International School Shanghai transformed their roof top garden into a Sky Farm. Good to China’s Sky Farm team led workshops throughout the day with junior and senior students. Engaging in hands on science as junior and senior science students put science into practice. Students learned about ecosystems, sustainability and were encouraged to pick and support a Sustainable Development Goal (recently released by the UN).

Students set up a series of long-term experiments, checked the suitability of their soil to grow their own nutritious vegetables through a series of experiments such as measuring pH, soil composition, bio diversity and more. They set up a specific area to monitor changes in soil according to different strategies to maintain soil texture and quality over the autumn and winter season. Students then set to work to improve soil content for immediate planting. With teams in place and fabulous names for each working team, students prepared their planting areas and planted the sky farm in teams according to Sky Farms rotational plan for nutritious and sustainable food. Each team will now maintain their personal garden plot and share their bounty with their community as it grows and produces great tasting, locally grown vegetables.

You can find this article also on our Blog “Shanghai Skyfarms“. There we explain also more about the concept of Skyfarms and publish weekly updates of our volunteer activities & events.

 

在2015年地球科学周期间,上海协和国际学校将他们的屋顶花园华丽转身成空中农场。GoodtoChina的空中农场团队为高二和高三年级学生开展了全天的研习班。让理科生们积极参与,把科学亲身运用到实践中去。同学们了解学习了生态系统、可持续发展,并受到鼓励去选择和支持一项可持续发展目标(已由联合国近期通过)。同学们建立了一系列长期实验,通过测试pH值、土壤成分、生物多样性之类的实验,检查了土壤是否适宜种植富含营养的蔬菜。他们还设立了一块特定的区域来检测土壤的变化,以根据不同的策略在秋冬季之间保持土壤的结构和质地。同学们随后开始去改善土壤成分以立即种植。在确立了各自的团队以及起好了漂亮的队名后,照空中农场的轮作计划,同学们着手准备了他们各自的种植区域,为要在空中农场可持续地种上营养价值高的食物。从现在起,每个队都会维护他们各自的菜地,而且会慷慨地将当地出产的美味蔬菜和他们的社区团体一起分享。
