The program includes education of students in the Marin Drzic elementary school in Dubrovnik on healthy nutrition as well as on fruit and vegetables of the season, local gastro culture and tradition. The students will pick leaves and flowers of different plants (fruit, vegetables and herbs) and put them in a herbarium made by themselves.

The aim of this project is to teach the students how to recognize the plants, learn their names and the right season when to enjoy them. In this way the pupils’ interest and curiosity for healthy local food as well as for the biodiversity of the cultivars and edible wild plants will be encouraged.
