Sowing Seeds of Success

INTRODUCTION TO OUR CHILDREN'S REFORESTATION PROGRAMME

Welcome to our children's Reforestation Educational Curriculum 'Sowing Seeds of Success' we are working on a French version especially created for the children of Haiti and DR Congo.

This Educational Curriculum, once translated, will teach the children how plants grow, what they needed for good natural growth, how to nurish plants, to prune and graft fruit trees and much much more...

Optional: Download 'Seed Germination' video

According to USAID/HAITI REFORESTATION FACT SHEET

'Widespread deforestation is a critical concern in Haiti and poses a serious threat to the lives of Haitian citizens. This deforestation has led to flooding, dramatic rates of soil erosion, and subsequent declines in agricultural productivity. Haiti's valuable coastal and marine resources have been degraded by sediment deposit and overfishing, resulting in considerable loss in biodiversity.'

Our 'Sowing Seeds of Success' educational curriculum will work to reeducate the children in Haiti and eventually in DR Congo on the value of planting trees, especially Moringa trees!

They will however also be taught about Jesus the true vine, and God the Father the Gardener.

Optional: Download 'John 15: 1' Bible Verse Visual Aid.

The children can colour these Educational and Biblical Visual Aids on arrival in the class to be used to assist the teacher in teaching the lesson.

Seeds come in different shapes and sizes, but every seed carries within it all the potential and the promise of what it can become.

Optional: Download 'Needs of plants' video

Every seed consists of an embryo and a food store, surrounded and protected by an outer seed coat. The food store is large enough to allow the plant to grow its first leaves so that it can start producing its own food. Under the right conditions, this perfect little "bundle" will grow and develop into a new plant, which in turn will provide food and shelter, or simply beauty, to us all.

In order to grow, develop and become a healthy new plant though, every seed needs a few basic ingredients.

Optional: Download 'What a Plant Needs to Survive' music video

Seeds require different types of soils, water, sunlight, time and just the right temperature to flourish and grow.

Botanists will tell you that the soil determines the health and strength of a plant. The better the soil, the healthier, the more fruitful and stronger the plant will be.

We will learn all about the 'Parable of the Sower' in our Moringa Curriculum, 'Sowing Seeds of Success'.

Optional: Download 'Parable of the Sower' video

Optional:Download Bible for Children: 'The Farmer and the seed' PowerPoint, and take home track.

Scientists will tell you that every living thing needs water , and a seed is no different.

Optional: Download 'Why do plants need water?' video

Water is vital to the seed because it's what helps it absorb nutrients from the soil and it's what helps it germinate. Seeds do this by absorbing the water and breaking through the shell to take root.

That is why later in this Series we have an entire 'Grow and Go Water Series'

The sunlight provides the warmth and the energy needed for the seed to grow and develop.

Light is what shows it which way is up and allows it to know where to place its leaves. It also helps it develop fruit.

Optional: Download 'What foods do plants need to grow?' video

You will learn all about light and the Light of the world in the 'Grow and Go Light Series'

Time is essential for germination and growth. Time is a process.

You can't slow time or hurry it up; it goes at its own pace and allows the seed to germinate, develop and grow, until it reaches full growth and becomes fruitful itself.

Optional: Download 'How do trees grow?' video

Finally, temperature is important in the germination process. If a seed is in an environment lacking the right temperature its chance of success is severely limited, even if all the other elements are present. If it's too hot, it will dry up and if it's too wet, it will rot. Both extremes will result in the seed's death.

All of these ingredients are essential, if the seed is to unlock the full promise and potential it carries, and if it is to develop into what it is meant to be.

The same is true for the Christian. We need certain ingredients if we're to develop and grow and become fruitful and mature. And the children will over this year learn how to grow Spiritually.
