This call for project is open to all sectors, however you need to state clearly how your project fits the theme “Sustainable Technologies for Africa”.
We have kickstarted 2018 with a joint activity with GC de Platoo and the Botanic Garden Meise. Children from the cultural centre De Platoo participated in our activity focusing on food origins and use. They visited the tropical glass house of the botanic garden where they saw and also learnt about the plants that produce some of the food products they know. Some of these plants include cocoa, coconut, sugarcane, banana, plantains, coffee. Later at the castle in the garden the children tasted food produced from these plants. They also used spices from different parts of the world wile learning how to make speculoos biscuits.
We wish you a merry christmas and a happy new year. Thanks for all your support in 2017 and we look forward to greater achievements in 2018.
