This was my first plantation activity. It was physically exhausting but I got to learn the usage of appropriate tools used for plantation and how plantation helps its surrounding areas.This activity was very challenging for me in itself however the struggles increased since it began raining heavily. At the end, it was a great experience being so close to nature and its greenery.
The learning outcomes I achieved through this activity are:
LO 2 Demonstrate that challenges have been undertaken, developing new skills: Before this, I had never participated in agricultural activities, so this was new to me. The major challenges I faced were The use of the heavy tools and the pouring rain made it more difficult.
LO 5 Demonstrate the skills and recognize the benefits of working collaboratively: I learned new skills of farming and worked with the volunteers and tried to follow their instructions as effectively as I could.
LO 6 Demonstrate engagement with issues of global significance: The plantation activity that I did acted as my contribution to making the world greener and promoting environment conservation.
