The Movement of Life School Health Parliament Project

In March 2015, the Movement of Life Uganda team, under the leadership of Gyavira Mwesigwa Bugigi, launched a school gardening project at the St. Agnes Centre for Education in Mbarara town, located in the Western Region of Uganda. The project involves learning about natural health approaches, spreading health information around the school and in the local community, and growing fruit trees, vegetables, and medicinal plants. In all there are now a total of more than 10 schools involved in the project. The gardening project is part of the ‘End Heart Disease, Plant a Fruit Tree’ campaign, which aims to teach people how heart disease is caused by a long term lack of vitamin C.

The gardening work carried out in the project is organized and conducted through the setting up of a ‘School Health Parliament’ in each school. The members of these parliaments meet regularly to represent their classes. Through participation in this innovative project, children also learn important life skills that they can continue to develop and refine right through to adulthood.

If you are interested to work with the Movement of Life, get active in the ‘End Heart Disease, Plant a Fruit Tree’ campaign and launch a ‘School Health Parliament’ project where you live, please contact us, we’ll look forward to hearing from you!

Join us in the Movement of Life and let’s work together for the next generations. To free our health, to free our food, to free our water, our energy, and work, so that we can live a free life!

Growing minds by growing school gardens: Laurie Brekke at TEDx Navesink

When Laurie Brekke and Hope Hanlon created the learning garden for Atlantic Highlands Elementary School, they assumed it would be embraced with open arms: a gift; an outdoor playground to be used as a hands-on teaching tool, incorporating everything from science to the arts. There is so much more to learn in a school garden than just gardening.

Porto Verde


The project Porto Verde, appeared within a cultural festival held in Porto and has the unusual aim of finding spaces in the city that are currently unused or under-valued and that may be thought of as urban, community, social gardens.

The challenge was to bring together a set of wills and a set of opportunities and then create something totally new. We think of beautify the city we inhabit, to take advantage of empty spaces, to enhance the feeling of community and make our city more organic.

Collective Seed Sowing: Cyprus Winter 2015

On February the 14th 2015 the Collective Seed Sowing 2015 event took place in Nicosia, at the 3rd Makedonitissa elementary school where friends and complete strangers of all ages gathered together to learn how to plant heirloom seeds.

The mission of this event was to bring awareness to the importance of Seed Saving and maintaining our traditional varieties. The heirloom seeds used in this event were a collection of seeds offered by a number of active Seed-Savers from various Eco-Groups of Cyprus, as well as generously offered by friends from all over Cyprus and a number of local seed-saving teams from Peliti-Greece.

The four representatives of the organizing groups were interviewed and are presented in this video.
