Mother Earth is Worth Fighting For!


Amazing Tutors' Permaculture Garden Club Promotes Decarbonization


          "At Amazing Tutors Children's Foundation, we believe that some of the world's problems can be solved in a garden. Good things come to those who believe, better things come to those who are patient and the best things come to those who do not give up on planting more plants and trees. Decarbonization can halt climate change!" 


          The Amazing Tutors' Permaculture Garden volunteers celebrated this year's charitable giving by growing organic vegetables and collecting fresh cut flowers and fresh fruit food donations. We carefully sorted, packed and delivered these seasonal charity baskets a local shelter. Our Bee Friendly, Permaculture Garden and sun room was designed as part of our Community Outreach Program to create volunteer opportunities and environments that foster our students' ability to participate in a caring, giving, supportive, and sustainable community. The aim was to grow our team-spirit while giving back to our community. Our integrated, hands-on Eco-Friendly Permaculture Garden featured recycled, reclaimed, re-purposed, thrifted and upcycled supplies and items to encourage waste minimization and reuse strategies.


         The youth of today understand that we do not have the technology to neither remove or pump greenhouse emissions out of the earth, so we planted more plants, shrubs and trees to convert carbon dioxide to re-oxygenate mother earth. For decarbonisation to work, the continued shift away from fossil fuels is essential.  At Amazing Tutors' Children's Foundation, students look forward to working together championing issues that are important to wildlife conservation, climate change, elimination of single use plastics, biodiversity, saving trees and habitats, banning the captivity of cetaceans and the health of our oceans.


Permaculture Gardening 


         Permaculture is a design system which sprang up during the 1970s oil crisis. It is a reaction to food insecurity and the desire for self-reliance for growing food. Combining a change in attitude, simple observation and practical application, it encompasses recycling, reusing and regenerating. Permaculture land-use ethics invite us to protect intact ecosystems where they remain and, where ecosystems have been destroyed, to help heal and restore them.  Permaculture design also suggests that we take care of earth while taking care of all living beings.  It is really about working with nature, not against it.


           When applied to gardening, it suggest that we can grow food almost anywhere --from fruit shrubs in container pots to vines on fences. We can get higher yields with less effort simply by imitating nature. In contrast to many modern agricultural methods, a natural growing system should be able to sustain a continuous cycle, with dead plants becoming mulch for new growth. Permaculture gardening rediscovers ways to recreate this natural cycle through composing. By turning food waste into valuable compost and replacing slug pellets and weedkillers with natural predators and natural competition, we can always leave the soil better than we find it.  


         The modern Village Surrey Transition Initiative and Transition Town movement emerged from the permaculture model, as a reaction to concerns over peak oil. It is really possible to grow food in a sustainable way using practical knowledge, skills, while benefiting ourselves, our local communities and wildlife.  



A Kind Word from an Amazing Student


        "Volunteering at Amazing Tutors' Children's Foundation over the years has been an opportunity to realize the issues of poverty and food scarcity which exist within our own community. Volunteering is an impactful way to positively influence the community and people around us.  The Amazing Tutors' Children's Foundation facilitates and assists each child's growth and development intellectually, socially, emotionally, physically, and culturally.  They do this so that each child can realize his or her full potential. Students and volunteers are held to higher expectations from the coordinators and mentors.  


The learning goals for volunteers were to:

  • Explore volunteer opportunities to recognize their value in developing their transferable job skills (communication, customer service, collaboration, time management, efficiency, enthusiasm, problem solving.)
  • Demonstrate leadership skills through collaboration activities in the community
  • Examine the importance of service learning and the responsibility of individuals to the contribute to community and the world."


​        - An amazing student volunteer


        "It is important for children and students to have access to mentors in their communities.  When children have access to mentors in their communities, they gain a sense of belonging and connection.  These relationships allow children exposure to new opportunities and perspectives to help expand their understanding of relationships and the world around them.  Additionally, sharing personal connections with positive role models enables children to reach their full potential and provides them positive reinforcement of their strengths, which naturally contributes to increases in a child's self-esteem.  Community-based mentors also aid in reducing social isolation and expanding a child's relationship skill set, allowing for genuine personal connections where the child can feel valued and secure and transfer those skills into other avenues of their lives."
