We plananted a small garden next to our guest house with various herbs that we can take care and enjoy during the workshops.

 

The list of herbs are: Rosemary, mint, lemon verbena, oregano, sage, thyme, lavender, geranium.

1st Workshop

Our first local workshop took place on 15th of November 2013 at the Agios Vlasios Chronically Diseases Infirmary in Livadeia with 20 senior participants.

In the workshop we prepared air freshener from a collection of herb extract and essential oils.  At the beggining of the workshop we identified the objectives of the workshop and the steps were written down on a white board for everyone to read and follow.

The workshop was realised by the social workers Nota and Xenia, along with the European volunteers Joao, Tania, Manuel, Sona and Gabriela and we thank them.

2st Workshop

Our sencond local workshop took place on 15th of May 2014 at "Special Education Center" in Livadeia.

All 22 mentally retarded persons participated succesfully in the workshop.

In the workshop we prepared air freshener from a collection of herb extract and essential oils.

We first explained the existence of smells and later we identified the differences in smells and made a game with it. Then we identified the items and demonstrated the steps to be followed. Right after we repeated the same procedure step by step and it was followed by all participants.

The workshop was realised with the necessary assistance of the staff (psycologist, social worker, ergotherapist) and the Euporean Volunteers, Paula and Magda, which they offer their services to the Center since September 2013. We thank them all.
