On March 11, 2024, the Organo Et School (OES) team hosted the fourth session of the Children on Campus farming program Maria International School. The activity aims to involve fourth-grade learners furin cultivating leafy greens. The session proved to be both fruitful and educational for the participating students, with 140 students enthusiastically engaging in the exercise, grouped into four batches.

Neem Oil Application

During the session, farming expert Mrs. Sreedevi Ande demonstrated the proper method of mixing neem oil with water for pest control.

 The children attentively followed her instructions and applied the solution to their leafy greens, ensuring the health and vitality of their crops.

Mrs. Sreedevi also discussed Integrated Pest Management strategies, highlighting the role of flowering plants in pest prevention, and introduced various traditional pest management methods to the students.

Farmlog Book Session

Mrs. Sandhya Reddi assisted the students in maintaining their farm record books. Under her supervision, students documented important information such as a list of farming necessities, weather conditions, manure application records, and the growth stages of their leafy greens. Students were able to ask questions and address any concerns they had about their farming activities. By actively engaging in the cultivation process and maintaining detailed records in their farm log books, students gained valuable insights into sustainable farming practices and environmental stewardship.

Both sessions proved highly engaging and educational for the children, as they learned about protecting their plants from pests and the importance of monitoring weather conditions and farming essentials. After the sessions concluded, the children returned to their classrooms happily, enriched by their experiences in the farming sessions.
