Learning about organic farming at the Mediterranean Science Festival

On Thursday 27th of April, we had the opportunity to conduct a workshop for children at the Mediterranean Science Festival which took place at the Old Port Square, Limassol on 27-30 of April. Initially, we presented the basic principles of organic farming, and the knowledge of children was tested using a mini quiz. Active discussion followed between groups of children about the choices they can make for their food shopping with the children showing interest in products that are beneficial for the environment and health. At the end, children with the highest score on the quiz, received a comic book with “organic” content and all of the children received an activity book that describes craft ideas using organic food and materials.
