On September 19th, 2023, The Gaudium School students visited Organo Et School's Farm. When they arrived our team warmly received them and directed them to a shaded area for settling down.
Following everyone's seating, Mr. Srinath Manda, our General Manager, introduced Organo Et School's mission and emphasized the significance of natural farming. He vividly illustrated the challenges faced by farmers and urged the children not to waste food.
Following this insightful introduction, we divided all 127 students into three groups. Mr. Srinath personally led one group on a comprehensive tour of the farm. He began by showcasing Gongura and Thotakura plants grown in farm patches by recent Kindergardeners.
Subsequently, he provided a demonstration on composting techniques using organic farm waste.
The tour proceeded to Mandala gardens, where the students learned about the concept of mandala gardens and the various flowers and herbs cultivated there.
Continuing the tour, the students explored the Soybean field and received an explanation about monocrops. They were also introduced to a pest catcher within the Papaya Plantation.
Afterwards, the students witnessed the farm's water harvesting methods and observed the farm equipment used for precise fertilizer application through drip irrigation.
Inside the polyhouse, they were presented with different crops and informed about the advantages of polyhouse cultivation.
The final stop was the banana plantation, where the students examined banana plant leaves, flowers, and fruits.
Simultaneously, another group engaged in the creation of Jeevamrutham, a natural fertilizer made from ingredients such as besan, jaggery, cow dung, cow urine, and soil. Mrs. Sreedevi Ande guided them through the process, explaining its significance in natural farming. The children thoroughly enjoyed this hands-on activity.
The third group, under the guidance of Mrs. Susmita Changkakoty, conducted a soil test to analyze soil texture. After the soil had settled, the children observed its distinct layers. Each group rotated through all three activities, allowing everyone to partake in each experience. Some of the students and teachers also shared their impressions and insights.
