Kira Tells Stories About Vegetables in Natipuan Elementary School

As part of the DLSU No Impact Experiment, the Libraries and the American Corner-Manila joined the LEAP class of Dr. Carla Pacis to teach the school children basic vegetable gardening and to tell stories about eating green leafy vegetables. This outreach activity was held at the Natipuan Elementary School, Natipuan, Batangas on 14 June 2016. 

One hundred (100) children in grades K-2 listened to storytelling sessions conducted by Candy May Schijf, STC Library Coordinator. A total of 180 children in grades 3-6 participated in the vegetable planting workshop. Lanie Espiritu from Home Gardening was invited to give a lecture and demonstration on vegetable gardening. 

This activity was also attended by seven student volunteers from DLSU Manila as alternative learning class.
