[/ caption] "The leaves are picked up by children children for toys, bu ", lamented the mothers of the Engkang-kang community. A vibrant community of Cidurian river banks organized their environment. They studied urban farming, planted vegetables and ornamental plants in pots and then stored lined along the paths RW 10, Village Cigadung District Cibeunying Kaler Bandung. But apparently these innocent little children feel alien to the new environment. They were more familiar with the day-to-day scenes when the streets were dusty and the plastic bags of garbage dangled along the road while the mothers were chopping the vegetables for cooking while chatting with neighbors. Building houses that leave no green open space and narrow paths that cause the inhabitants are reluctant to grow crops. Therefore the behavior of these funny children can not be blamed. Not even with the extreme acts of some mothers who closely monitor the existence of the plants or more extreme that is bringing into the plant into the house so that there are no small hands are curious. The solution is to involve them in every activity of their parents. So hopefully they understand the usefulness of the plant. And the plants in pots are different from the vegetables that his mother usually used before cooking kale. There are three things children need to understand correctly, and all three are expected to help them avoid environmental degradation.
Learn to grow fruit seeds. Before learning to plant they should be given a simple understanding of the main human needs of breathing and the linkage of oxygen supply trees by squeezing their respective noses. And how the tree as a living thing will cry when its leaves suddenly stripped down. After that they get a small pot distribution or can be recommended the former plastic cup, a former plastic snack as a place to plant. The seeds grown are derived from the fruits they eat or they meet in the street. Why fruit seeds? Because parents generally buy ornamental plants. So the children lose moment attention to the plants that grow from the seeds, will appear roots, leaves andseterusnya. After a lifetime, the plant is moved to polybag or to larger pots and named after the child. Next with their parents go to the hills / mountains that begin to bare and plant trees that have been named. Periodically planting trees into hills / mountains is done so that children can see the development of trees that they previously planted and planted a new tree. And so on, so that children can contribute to the greening as well as education from upstream. Because the sense of belonging to nature must be owned by children since early age. For those domiciled in the area of ??Bandung, can plant Manglayang mountain, Mount Geulis, Punclut, Karst Citatah Padalarang, Cireundeu indigenous communities. Can also contact local Walhi branch to get critical area information that must be planted.
Flood. Ever asked the child, why there is a flood? Generally they answer because of the garbage. Nothing wrong, but a critical child will answer that the waste is very little dumped while river water and sewer water is very heavy when heavy rain. So how could the flow of water not bring the waste to the sea? Yes, the hope of the sea will solve the waste since the city. That's why they "actively" throw garbage into streams and waterways. Resulting in the Citarum river has been named the dirtiest river in the world. The author tries to visualize the occurrence of flood by using empty containers as high as 15 cm, a plastic bag to cover the container and allow the rest of the plastic bag to curl to form the bottom. At the top of the container is placed a small pot as a presupposition of a mountain that is still not bald and water it with water. Water will be contained in the container because the water will pass through small holes in the bottom of the pot and pool in the upper container. This proves that the residential areas under the mountain are not affected by floods due to the trees that bind the soil and help impregnation. The pot is then taken, the plastic flattened on top of the container then watered again. Automatic water will be abundant everywhere including the plastic bag pouches as a visualization of the floods that soak the houses. The way out is shown by poking the plastic basin with a screwdriver. This latest visualization shows the use of absorption wells and biopore absorption holes (LRBs) that children have seen but are not known for their usefulness. After the lesson, the children were taken
