Chinese mum rents 'mountain' to teach daughter about nature
An extremely rich mother in China rented out an entire mountain just so that her 9-year-old daughter can learn about nature, it has been revealed.
According to Daily Express, when 33-year-old Gan Lin learned that her daughter, Yin Gan, who's in fourth class of a primary school, knows very less about plants, vegetables, or anything related to nature, she paid a local council to lease a mountain, including a farm with 1.3 hectares of land.
The former teacher said that it's best to teach city kids about nature in a natural setting rather than the classroom and its safe, clean and beautiful.
Since she could afford to rent a mountain, she did, added Lin, who is marries to a rich businessman and lives in China's Chongqing municipality.
Lin's daughter and her friends are made to work in the farm and help look after fruit trees and vegetable plots as part of their learning process.
