The compost pile
All the children get a taste of how to collect their waste, then turn this into a fertilizer they can use for the trees and herbs at the school The gardening team of Tongsai Bay have taken time and effort, the children in this photo are demonstrating what they have been taught, that’s the way to go.

WE MUST TEACH OUR CHILDREN WHIL THEY ARE YOUNG AND READY TO LEARN AND WILLING TO CHANGE, PARENTS MUST TODAY TAKE PART IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF THEIR CHILDREN!

Preparing to Make EM
The children getting their hands dirty with waste separation and preparation for composting and EM production. Once we educate them young in many yeas down the line they will take over and take hold of the way we should be moving, Going Green and mean.

Get the kids to weigh all their garbage
Onto the scales, lets see how much we can separate and how we can reduce form going into the waste heap. There is money in garbage and pigs of course

Taking into account
Teach them young to take account of what they can sell, by doing things that matter children will become more attune to saving money and separating their own garbage. There is no better time than when they are young and willing to learn

OUR COMBSAT SQUIREL IS OUT AGAIN

Organization

He's all dressed up, combat gear in toe, you must be aware that nature will fight back, as it has done for millions of years, we share their world, we destroy their world in the name of progress and production, prosperity. Where has this got us today, a world that needs repairing and who can do that? It must be all of us. Nature needs our support, get planting trees, don't wait until tomorrow start growing seedlings. We don't need to see the wild animals in zoos, they belong out there, its their home before we came along, lets live with them, protect them.

What can be done from Trash!
It was a wonderful display at the Bai leam school the children had worked hard to create something out of nothing. Painted egg shells, plastic water containers or buckets made from water bottles, small bottles decorated with sand for small ornaments. Coconut bowls. Egg cartons changed to become boards on the walls, or turned into picture frames.
