Hands-On Learning with a Naturalist: 
Guided by experienced naturalists, students will get their hands dirty, learning the art of garden care and sustainable practices. From planting seeds to nurturing thriving green spaces, participants will develop a deep connection with nature and gain practical skills to contribute to a healthier environment. Students will also learn more about SWANA eco-diversity and planting practices. These hands-on workshops will take place on Al-Hadiqa: AANM’s Heritage Garden.

Empowering Future Stewards: 
Our program goes beyond gardening! Students will be empowered to be ambassadors for the environment by creating powerful Public Service Announcements (PSAs). Through engaging lessons on writing, video creation and various storytelling methods, they’ll harness their creativity to spread awareness about crucial environmental issues.

Unleash Your Creative Voice:
