November 19, Thimphu: In an award ceremony, the Director General for Department of School Education, Mr. Karma Yeshey congratulated 14 Thimphu Thomde Schools for initiating the pot garden and strengthening the herbal garden concept as a part of the School Agriculture Programme (SAP).
The Director General said that pot gardening is one of the concepts that is encouraging in schools where they do not have sufficient garden area. In such situation, students still can practice the gardening and instill the knowledge and skills of gardening that is very much part of wholesome education policy. He also acknowledged the participating schools for imparting the knowledge of herbal gardening to students that used to be the knowledge only to the National Institute of Traditional Medicine in the past. Although Bhutan was known by “Lhodzong Menzong”, many people do not know many herbal and medicinal plants that are around us.
