The Sabra Plants with a Purpose Project

As of 2017, Obela in Australia has been participating in an educational community project called Plants with a Purpose. This project organizes educational activities for school going-age children about correct and balanced nutrition, the importance of eating vegetables, and the advantages of community gardening. As part of this project, volunteers from Obela ran classes on these subjects and assisted with setting up a local vegetable gardens inside the school grounds. Between 2017 and 2019, volunteers from Obela participated in the program in six schools throughout the year. In 2020, in spite of the Corona restrictions that required social distancing and remote learning for most of the year, Obela managed to continue to run the program on a limited basis. The program is due to continue in the coming years, even more so after the Corona crisis.
