The Gardenholics Club kicked off this semester with two enthusiastic students Natasha Preba and Nadean Sam. As is the usual, the club has had some challenges going through the different phases of gardening; nursing, transplanting, watering, flowering, fighting pests, growth and now Harvest. After a beautiful inauguration of the club during the just ended expression 2016, the club has grown to five members and has had its first harvest of Basil, mustard and spring onions.
The members then decided to merge with the cooking class to prepare a delicious meal with their produce. This is what some members had to say about the whole process and experience:
I felt very satisfied and accomplished that I got to grow something and I cooked it. It made me feel warm inside and very happy and the food was so nice and natural J – Taibat Abdulrazaq (G8)
As a member of the cooking class, I learnt a lot from the Gardenholics about the different plants involved in the meal. We cooked Pesto Pasta, mustard salad and much more. – India Agyemang (G8)
I was ecstatic and fulfilled to finally harvest and even be able to prepare a delicious meal out of it. It was nice to make a presentation to Auntie Cecilia, Auntie Frances, Mrs. King, Dr. Ken & Mr. Atindana about what we prepared and its health benefits. It has been a valuable experience and I hope to have many more of it – Nadean Sam (IB1)
