The After School Program was initiated by Happy Garden Enrichment Center (HGEC). Kids between 2-7 years old come to Serukam Farm to be with nature. Among the activities, we gave them opportunities to smell and taste organic herbs, flowers, vegetable and fruits. In a safe environment, they learn to get close to our water system – ponds and well. The kids also learn to do gardening – weeding, mulching, planting, watering, composting and harvesting. Identification of local fruit trees are taught and with some colors, they made leaf prints. Being around small animals like chickens and dogs has made them learn about compassion and love towards animals. There are also recycling competition where they race to find treasures – recyable materials.
On the other hand, we really learn how to make friends with young kids. It’s a HUGE reward to be with them.
