Picking Sweet Basil Flowers

It was another happy trip tour for the IEP lions at the farm. With hats and gloves, they were learning about the different kinds of basils and their uses for making natural mosquito repellent as well as for cooking. It was first time for lots of kids from cities to get their hands dirty and have a close contact with the natural plants and to learn their uses. It was surprisingly fresh!

IEP offers weekly outside classroom activities for students to learn through the “First-Hand Experience” in real life, which is a more vivid and impressive way of learning English through touching, feeling and sometimes tasting the nature. Except fresh air, greenery views and cute animals, the bonus of this wonderful learning experiences also brings them teamwork and joys of freedom in nature.

Under the blue sky, learning Sustainability, Lions run happily.
