Just one seed is our newest and biggest project yet and a little different to anything that we have done before. It is an environmental project which will show that even the smallest of actions can create big changes.
This year we will be encouraging children and young people to care for their environment and learn about nature in fun and creative ways. We have also set ourselves the challenge to fill neglected areas with colourful flowers and create beautiful community gardens in a number of places.
Our first adventure is to create a community garden complete with play area and seating in Meftah, an area just a little outside of the capital. This garden will be a place for the whole community to enjoy. It will provide a fun space for children to play in and an area for adults to sit and relax. Through creating and caring for the garden It will be a place for people to come together, share their skills, gain new experiences, care for the environment and make a long lasting difference. The benefits for everyone are far reaching. Work has already started on our first garden and we are so excited and totally thrilled at the prospect of turning mud and debris into something gloriously beautiful and beneficial but, to do it we really need your help.
In Algeria there is a saying: one hand can’t clap. individually, even with the best of intentions we are limited, but collectively the possibilities are endless. Together we can do so much more, together we can make our community gardens a reality . Are you ready to join hands and make some noise?
