Gai Xintong, a third grade student from Beijing has been taking care of the 20-square-meter vegetable garden at her school together with a bunch of other kids since this January. She said the half-year experience made her cherish everything she eats more than ever.
Gai is one of the 798 students from 23 primary schools and kindergartens in Beijing that had the chance to experience vegetable planting, as the French Embassy in China launched the "Nurseries for Nurseries" competition last November.
Starting from this January, the participating schools, which all have team leaders to lead the project, started doing it either outdoors or indoors.
文中的vegetable garden就是“菜园”的意思，其中vegetable用作名词，意为“蔬菜”；garden常用作复数，意为“园地”，指种植着花、树木和观赏灌木并用作消遣和展览的地方，如：public gardens（公园）、botanical gardens（植物园）。
第二段中的launch用作动词，意为“发起；推出（新产品）”，如：We were going to launch a counterattack.（我们准备发起反攻。）
The schools also created a WeChat group to share experiences and best practices during the planting process.
