Do you want to teach your child about farming? Do you want children to be aware of where food is produced and how it is produced? Do you have children who aren't scared to work hard, get dirty, get in, and help? Then, make sure to enroll them up for the upcoming "Kinder-gardeners" session at OES Children's Farm.

Here are some reasons why every child should work on a farm. Through farming, children learn about the origins of their food, how to care for the soil, how to be more aware of nature and the weather, and how to appreciate food.

About the Kinder Gardeners program

After registering, each of the 20 children will be given a 3X3 square foot plot to grow their vegetables on. They will be given a 30-35 day harvest schedule (matching to a standard Green leafy harvest cycle). Natural growth practices will be taught to them by members of our agricultural team and OES employees. They will get sensory learning by witnessing the soil preparation, seeding, caring, weeding, plant health care, and harvesting procedures. They must travel to the patch with their parents or legal guardian every weekend at the set hours to tend to their crops. 

There are just 20 patches available for this batch.

What we are able to offer

For the course's 30-35 day duration (5-week leafy crop cycle, seed to harvest), each child will have a farm plot measuring approximately 3X3 square feet. Seasonal saplings and seeds (2-leafys), bio-fertilizers, farming tools and fundamental natural farming advice on what to do on the weekend. Farming activities such as preparing the land, planting, weeding, tending, growing, harvesting, and more.

Farming instructor who will instruct kids on how to care after these crops. Along with farming there will be other activities such as a visit to a Goshala and learning about biogas plants, turning clay into art, and how to paint with natural colors. There will be an informal seating area for parents and guardians close to the agricultural area.

What the kids are expected to carry out

Every weekend they come and go at a certain time to tend to their farm plot. Bring their own gardening supplies, such as gloves, spades, watering cans, and child-safe scissors, as well as proper clothing, such as weather-appropriate clothing and sturdy shoes.

Adopt a farm-friendly attitude. Bring snacks, food, and drinks for oneself. Bring cloth napkins and hand towels. Bring paper or canvas bags to transport the freshly gathered produce to your home. The children will have sensorial learning on growing seasonal leafy greens at the end of the Crop Cycle.

OES will issue you a certificate upon completion of the course. Recognise their contributions by featuring them on the OES website and social media channels.
