Environment Day started with tree cookies (the anatomy of a tree), picking up litter for collages, making soaps and salves, and composting. The next day we drove to the Agriculture college at the University of Gondar (who graciously hosted us for the week) and built an herb spiral garden in their entrance. At night we also screened a few Planet Earth episodes – “Mountains” actually feature the Simiens, which are just north of Gondar.
One my girls from Gondar has already called me saying she is building an herb spiral in her compound with her family. Permagardening and taking skills home for the win!
