the Horta

Horta which has the same routes as Horticulture (i think) means vegetable garden or allotment.

Working with the kids in the shelter Tony has built up an area for the kids to grow fruit and veg.

Through this activity with the kids we hope to see them develop in several areas. working at the Horta is great physical exercise and gets the kids connected with creation. We also have the opportunity for the kids to develop their character, encouraging patience, working through disappointment (sometimes the ants destroy everything), and sharing with others what they have produced.

We hope that this daily activity proves to be a great tool in the rehabilitation of these broken children.
