Ethics For Children Service Project – Multigenerational Connection

Ethics For Children Service Project – Multigenerational Connection

With our BSEC platforms and Ethics for Children classes being held online, there have been fewer opportunities for multigenerational interactions within our community. Many of our students have never seen the BSEC building bustling with activity or enjoyed a brunch with the bunch. The latest service project for our EfC kids program was designed to remind participants that we are a part of a larger multigenerational community.
Earlier in March we came together and prepared house plants as gifts for a shortlist of recommended members. The kids designed and painted the pots, then chose from a variety of houseplant cuttings ready for transplant. Embodying our themes of care for the earth and care for community, the plants were potted in new soil ready to be taken to their new homes.
A special thank you to Nancy, Fiona, and Taty for helping with delivery!!!
