DIP GREEN: “Day 1”
We really got down to work today! We have done everything that was planned out and our eco garden already looks completely different and more prosperous.
Our young volunteers, actually, Youth Workers, DIP’s Youth Club that acted as the working force and technical service, our DIP members and their mothers gathered today and joined their forces and set to work.
As you can read in our News, project DIP GREEN has officially started today. The project is in collaboration with Association for civil society development – SMART, as part of the Erasmus+ project EDUVOL – Volunteering as an Educational Opportunity. The focus of the project is on service learning, which entails volunteering and learning of young people who are working with the youth in a formal or informal system. The main goal is to improve their competences, knowledge and skills, as well as their active involvement with the purpose of contribution to the community.

So we started with the work today, but before starting, we divided the responsibilities and tasks and then got to work. First, we cleaned the terrain, cut off and picked up various thorns, cut off sage leaves in order to dry them and then make some tea, collected rocks and boards and then started planting. First, we planted the pear tree, which we named “our first baby”, then the fig tree, berries (raspberries, blackberries and blueberries) and finally medicinal and culinary herbs.
We watered everything, cleaned up after ourselves and let our fruits and plants soak up the water and revive in our garden.
Even though we were very tired, we left with a smile on our faces and full of pride because of successfully done job!
Great job everyone! Rest up and see you next time!
