Our body is a living organism and as such it requires life to live.
Our pedagogical purpose is grounded in considering the vital processes that take place in human biology, including nutrition and regeneration. The proposal is to get to know ourselves more deeply and to study the phenomena of life that shape our human nature. Thus, a biological approach encourages us to understand the complex network of relationships and interactions that sustain health from a holistic perspective and to conceive our body as a wholeness.
How closely our health is related to biological rhythms, such as breathing, nutrition, regeneration and elimination? We highlight the relevance of biological processes involved in increasing food vitality and nutritional quality, without overlooking the importance of soil fertility, agricultural production and other dimensions that affect the quality of our daily food. All this is based on simple and fundamental questions:
Why and what do we eat?
How do we embody this knowledge with concrete actions in our daily lives?
Children as seeds of future
“Children are the living message we send to a time we will not see” Neil Postman
Our healthy habits, like seeds, are cultivated during early age. Connection with nature, environmental awareness and sustainability, sense of responsibility towards life processes, cognitive and affective skills, engagement to healthy food and healthy eating habits. Formal and informal learning spaces integrating sciences, nutrition and art. Motivation, curiosity, imagination and joy!
Health is what one makes of it...
... and any effort is light on habit.
Our holistic perspective is not simply a proposal to expand our knowledge of biological processes that support health, but also to review the underlying way of thinking, our affective engagement with food, as a bridge to our actions. The way we conceive health, shapes our habits and lifestyle.
One world, one health
“If we want to stay and prosper on this planet, we have to reconcile our needs with the limits of the biosphere”
We need to return to sustainable ways of cultivating, producing and consuming our food. Food is much more than just sustenance; it represents a network of relationships. How are we involved in this web of life? Reclaiming our food means getting actively and healthily involved within this network.
Germinating Life …
... cultivating a Pocket Garden.
Teaching-learning guide for children and educators with meaningful and experiential activities to experience the process of seed germination; integrating science, nutrition and art. This book is an inspiring didactic material for educational contexts, considering that the germination process is a topic included in every school’s Natural Science curriculum.
The seed invites us to discover its mysteries integrating both the intellectual and affective domains, by studying the living process of plant development in the shoes of a scientist, a chef and an artist. “Germinando Vida” was first published in 2017, in Buenos Aires (Argentina). The second publication in its English version was improved with the support of Peter Reichenbach from Sevengardens global network.
