Up-cycled Edible School Garden

Just like most populated areas of the world, Curacao too has a trash problem. In order to create a greater awareness and reduce pollution Muriel’s Kitchen and the fantastic sponsors, are proud to present the ‘Up-cycled Edible School Garden’ programme.
With this programme we strive to create an edible school garden using mostly recycled materials, according to the ‘ Reuse, Reduce and Recycle’ motto.

Happy Spring Days on Curacao

Happy spring break on Curacao

Spring time in the Caribbean is a little different from the ‘traditional’ spring image we see in the general media around us. Although most chicks here are yellow and the flowers bloom and blossom, Caribbean spring is just different. To celebrate our unique climate we’re having a Happy Spring Break on Curacao this year!

Seed to School programme Curacao


Seed to School garden on Curacao
Gardening helps children understand how to care for living organisms, the foundations of growing, maturity, competition, cooperation and harvesting. School gardens can help the children learn better emotionally and academically.

By learning to care for and understanding the growth process a fruit or vegetable has to go through to reach maturity (ready to eat), kids will develop an understanding of nature’s importance in their lives and in the lives of other living beings. This will give the kids a greater sense of self sustainability and will boots their overall self-esteem.

Understanding the growth process, the taste and texture will also assist in positively developing the kids’ (healthier) eating habits, thus reducing the development of (childhood-) obesity.

Study has shown by introducing a routine of caring for the garden has reduced moods and eases anxiety. Caring and working together on the garden also has shown an increase in the kids’ ability to understand and share the feelings of others.
