Operation flower field is sustainability in practice

In this school project children learn about plant life cycles and biodiversity. They learn to gather seeds from local wildflowers and transform empty lawns into flower fields where bumblebees and bees can eat and thrive.

With the flower field as a specific example, the students get a practical and exploratory way to gain knowledge about basic connections in nature. And most important of all: they get to experience that they can do something to repair nature where they live.

Do you want to help establish more flower fields in Vestland?

School classes in Bergen have accepted the challenge. Now we want to expand to the whole county, but to do that we need volunteers. Do you want to help find suitable places for flower fields and follow up with the schools? We give all the necessary training.
