A Journal exploring the value of plants and flowers

Groen Doen in de Klas

Groen Doen in de Klas!, or Act Green in the Classroom!, wants to create an awareness of the benefits of green spaces with kids from a young age.

Our mission is to allow students to learn about and experience the emotional meanings of flowers and plants by actively engaging with the latter at school. We teach them how to take care of flowers and plants, how to breed them and perhaps even create new species, in order to establish a valuable connection to the natural world from an early age on.

In the future, we hope to be present in primary and secondary schools in the Netherlands, and hope to starting up programs in Germany, France and England as well.
