About Be a Farmer program
Once enrolled, 20 children will be allotted 48 sq.ft patch each to farm. They will be given a harvest program for 120 days (a typical harvest cycle). They will be guided by our farming team members and OES team members on natural farming techniques. They will have hands-on learning from soil preparation, seeding, tending, weeding, plant health care, harvesting, plant maturity, composting, to mulching. They will have to visit the patch (along with their parent/guardian) every weekend during designated hours and care for their crops.
