Being alone

Hey there! im the teacher” if you still remember me! alright you guys haven’t know me very well yet, my name is Helmi!

On the 25th of May, sadly, i am the only one who came for the lifeskill class as my other classmates are having their fun time at home.

On that particular day, I learnt about the benefits of the plants such as it prevent dry skin, help the computer to work faster when plant is been placed beside it and etc which i found useful to me.

Not only learning about plants, I get the opportunity to plant two different kind of plants and they are Mother of the thousands and Red bayam micro-greens.

Farewell to our Beloved Kangkong and Hello to Jian Qiao

Hello everyone! my name is amirul. On the 18th of May, its the day we harvest our kangkong plant. We studied on our diets and the food that we consume each day. We also watched a video on the different types of chicken that are found at the wet market and where they came from.We learned why we should eat less meat and the areas of the chicken where we should avoid eating as it is where they inject the growth medicines which is at the neck. We studied how the chickens are grown at the chicken farms. At the end of the day, we harvested our fully grown kangkong and brought some home and also gave them away to others.

Onesimus Garden

Salutations! We have once again come back from our mini hiatus, this time we’ll be writing about our trip to Onesimus Garden. My name is Kenneth and today I’ll be the one giving you all the juicy information of our little learning journey.

We went to a garden called Onesimus Garden, Onesimus meant once useless and how useful. It has a land size of 3.44 hectars which is almost the size of two football fields!

We were taught 4 Factors which were important in farming. Air, Water, Sunlight and Fertilizers. Using these factors, we could have two types of gardening. Natural Gardening and Controlled Gardening. We were also taught the advantages and disadvantages of the 2 types of gardening.

Natural Gardening
• Low cost
• Lower production
• Uncontrolled factors

Controlled Gardening
• High cost
• Higher production
• Controlled factors

 

One type of natural gardening was Soil Gardening. this type of gardening however, had more disadvantages as the soil can’t be washed up and could only produce 12 crops in one week.

Whereas Hydrophonics Gardening (water based) which is a type of controlled gardening is easier to clean and wash up and could  produce more than 50 crops in a week. Here are some pictures of hydrophonics gardening.

 

We were also presented with the opportunity to harvest and bring home some white cabbage. we first had to take their roots out before discarding some of the damaged leaves before sealing them in a plastic bag.

 

We were also tasked with planting some new crops. We were taught five steps.

  1. The removal of all the weeds and plants to ensure the soil is prepared for farming.
  2. Add and mix some fertilisers into the soil after making sure soil is even
  3. Create potholes in the soil with our fingers so that we could deposit the seeds in.
  4. Go to the well to retrieve some water to water our plants
  5. Cover it in some netting to ensure no pests get in and that the rain won’t damage the crops.

    Overall we had a great time. It was a learning experience and my team and I are glad we could participate in this eye opening trip. Our next post should be out shortly so stay tuned!

 

 

The Budding of Seeds Sequel

Good day my fellow Netizens! My name’s Kenneth and today, I will bring you to the events of what my group did on the 27th of April. That day, our teacher, Ms Wee, taught us of the reasons of why global warming and climate change was happening.

The gallery above shows our assigned question of why global warming was happening. This assignment once again reminded me and my friends of how serious global warming still is. We should remember to do our part to not further damage nature any more than necessary.

After our assignment, we went back to check up on how our plants were doing. They were as healthy as they could be, almost all the seeds grew nicely and were a healthy shade of green. Unfortunately, we forgot to take individual photos of our plants, so you’ll have to take our word for it…

Look forward to our next post though! We’ll be going on a trip to a farm next!

The Budding Of Seeds

Hey everyone! This is the “teacher” also known as Helmi. Today, I’m here to blog about the budding of my team’s seeds. You can think of different thing when I say that but what I mean is the seeds of the plant.

This was taken one week after we planted it which was on 20th April 2017. So expect our next post by today xD. That day, we learnt all about the causes that effect our climate and weather from our teacher.

It was an enlightening experience even though Kenneth was sleeping and Amirul was absent. Sadly to say that I’m the only one paying attention and I have to explain to Kenneth what was going on.

Other than that, expect our next post to be filled with pictures of our strong plant blooming! For now, be content with some pictures of our budding plants.

Salutations netizens of the Web! My name’s Amirul and this will be your first look into my groups first project in Eco-Sustainability. As you can see from the picture above of my charming face, this was our first week in which we sowed our first seeds to a hopefully great grade. That day, we also learnt about the difference between weather and climate.

This was taken on the date of 13th April 2017. So make sure to expect our seeds to bud on the next post!
