Your own garden thanks to natural sciences club!

Twój własny ogród dzięki klubowi przyrodniczemu!

You don’t have to be bored (znudzony) during the natural sciences club meetings! Organise a garden planning course! Imagine sandwiches with your own veggies (warzywka) in the spring time, colourful flowers smelling beautifully! It is really worth (warto) having at least a small garden!

Eight steps to your own garden!

1 – Learn about plants and garden! Role of sunlight (światło słoneczne) and water, the life cycle of plants, what plants can live next to each other, fertilising (nawożenie).

2 – Choose a site (miejsce)! Lots of sunlight, good soil (gleba), close to water.

3 – Involve (zaangażuj) everybody in the planning – what flowers to choose, where to plant (posadzić) them, whether you want to grow (hodować) veggies (warzywa) or not.

4 – Divide (podziel) the work!

5 – Organise the tools (narzędzia)! Buy or borrow (pożyczyć) them: a hoe (motyka), a spade (łopata), a spading fork (widły), measuring tape (miarka), a garden rake (grabie), string (sznurek), label stakes (karteczki z nazwami), a hand trowel (mała łopatka), a watering can or bucket (konewka albo wiadro), a hose (szlauf). And don’t forget the gloves!

6 – Buy and plant what you want to grow! Flower seeds and bulbs, lettuce (sałata), radishes (rzodkiewki), sunflowers (słoneczniki), herbs (zioła). Remember that green onion, radishes and herbs will also grow in your “window” garden.

7 – Take care of your garden! Visit the garden at least twice a week, weed (wyrywać chwasty) and water (tu: podlewać).

8 – Enjoy your garden! You can spend your free time there working, talking to friends or having a picnic. You can also just relax! When you spot the first small leaves and stems going out – you’ll be very happy.
