    • to help an individual child to know more about the environment where they live, how to respect it and take care of the plants; to carry out a manual job and to be curious. The home garden helps each student to carry out the job properly and to develop patience to harvest the fruits;
    • to help the group / class to work and collaborate together in order to achieve the same objective: if only one person does not carry out his/her own responsibility properly, the work of all the people will be affected negatively. Moreover it helps to understand that diversities are everywhere, both in animal and vegetable, and that all is natural.
