Food fairy and the wild plant explorer is a comprehensive curriculum to educate children about local food, from its source to its taste. Using fun method children activate all senses learning about cultivated and wild plants as food ingredients and the importance of conservation to sustain our food.
The world is presently over-dependent on a few plant species. On the other hand, there are more than 7,000 plant species from the wild that could be eaten. This has lead into malnutrition problem that people face around the world. Mantasa works with edible wild plants to fight malnutrition.
