About 30 children participated in the storytelling workshop

As half of the schedule for the thirtieth Spring Week, this Wednesday, the twenty first, children-oriented actions have been promoted round Humaita. The motion was a partnership between the Environmental Education Group of the Municipal Secretariat of the Environment, Urbanism and Sustainability (Smamus) and the Education Center of São Vicente de Paulo. Pre-school children linked with the environment by means of storytelling workshop and tree planting.

A storytelling workshop led by Smamus librarian Elizabeth Lorensi introduced collectively about 30 children. Students performed with interactive books and discovered a little bit about the importance of nature. “The spring week, particularly the actions with children, are aimed toward drawing their consideration to the environment and taking care of the nature of the metropolis,” explains Juliana Herpich, head of Smamus’ Environmental Education Group.

Meanwhile, one other group moved to Prasa Pinheiro Machado, the place the Smamus Urban Tree Planting Group planted a Sincho (Sorocea bonplandii), the first to be planted in a sq. in the metropolis. The tree is right for area as a result of it’s a vegetable that requires little mild and upkeep. Little Isabella Bastos, 5 years previous, discovered what vegetation have to develop. “Sun and water are crucial for tree development. I’ll bear in mind all this after I develop up,” stated the scholar.
