The idea of The Sapling Academy Project is to change good practices and experiences on activities in and around the school greenhouses at Mankola Comprehensive School in Finland and Akademija Ugnes Karvelis Gymnasium in Lithuania. The pupils learn by doing things themselves: growing plants without chemicals according to the principles of sustainability and at the same time learning the basics of entrepreneurship when marketing and selling the products. The good practices and activities are written in a year calendar which both schools write every month and publish on the projects own Facebook pages.
There aren't many greenhouses in Europe so we hope to promote the starting of more school greenhouses and distributing good practises through Youtube demo videos, the project's own Facebook page and Mankola Comprehensive school greenhouse blog:http://mankolankasvihuone.blogspot.fi/
