One reason for having the AFCOE-Europe school in Portugal was because of the longer growing season so that we could have a garden. Each student has a section of the AFCOE Garden to take care of, by watering and weeding the plants, and checking for harmful insects. So far we have harvested cabbages, beets, lettuce, and spinach from the garden. All the food grown has been used by our fabulous cook Andreia to make very tasty vegan meals for the AFCOE-Europe program.
We look forward to expanding the garden in the future and growing even more things there! We know that Nature is God’s second book, and there are a lot of practical life lessons to be learned in the garden!
