After a month of hard work, the kindergardeners came to harvest the crop they had sown and receive their graduation certificates. It was a great day, and they thoroughly enjoyed themselves.
They all gathered at the tent area, where their teacher, Mrs. Sreedevi Ande, explained why some of their Thotakura leaves had holes. She explained that pests had attacked them and demonstrated how to control them naturally. She also discussed the difference between natural and chemical pesticides.
Mrs. Sreedevi demonstrated how to prepare neem oil and buttermilk solutions. The children sprayed these solutions on the demo patch, and she explained the significance of doing so.
Later, the OES team invited children and parents to the patch area to learn how to harvest. Mrs. Sreedevi instructed them to uproot Gongura and cut Thotakura near the roots. Children happily harvested the crop along with their parents.
After harvesting, we invited the children to receive their certificates from our General Manager, Mr. Srinath Manda, and their teacher, Mrs. Sreedevi. The children were overjoyed to receive their certificates, their eyes, faces, and bodies gleaming with joy as they accepted them. Along with the certificates, we also gave them coriander and spinach seeds to sow at home.
Afterward, some of the parents engaged in conversations about their professions and interests while the children enjoyed a farm tour led by our assistant program coordinator, Mrs. Susmita Changkakoty. As the children left, they expressed how much they would miss their farm Sundays. We want to thank all the parents for bringing their children every Sunday to experientially learn about natural farming.
