Metta Garden project Colombo

JCJ provided support to our sister organisation ECO-V to set up and run another Metta Garden in one of the largest schools of Sri Lanka. Metta Gardens aim to remake the connection between nature and the younger generation who now mostly live within urban areas, as well as to improve the local biodiversity and provide a solution to the Sri Lankan food crisis.

ECO-V have refocused their efforts on Metta Gardens and nurseries during COVID and the economic situation in Sri Lanka, that have prevented them from running the usual Yathra projects.

The school that this Metta Garden has been built on is one of the most reputable school in Colombo. So the message of the Metta Gardens will spread to the large number of school attendees, parents, and local community members.
