The Birches Eco-school South Africa

Below is our schools 'Sustainable Living map'.  It was used as an evaluation of the Sustainable
projects we are doing in our school.  To get the concept over to our 5 year - olds we asked them to imagine that our school grounds were an island where they would have to live on - for the rest of their lives!  They would
have no adults, no electricity, piped water or food delivered.  There would be no services at all.  Could they survive?  An intensive discussion about shelter, food growing, water harvesting, chicken rearing, waste management  ...... you name it - they got it!   We even have a circle of logs under a tree called the 'Legotla' in the Tree of Democracy!
