Do you want to introduce farming to your child? Do you want them to know where and how their food is grown? Do you have kids who are not afraid to get dirty, jump in and help, learn fast and work hard? Then, be sure to enroll them in the “Kinder-gardeners” program at OES Children’s Farm,

Program duration: 18 Sept till 25 Oct 2022, 5 Weeks.         

Time: 9:00am - 10:00am Every Sunday

Here’s why we think every child should experience farming. Farming teaches children:

  1. where their food comes from
  2. how to care for the soil
  3. Nature and Weather awareness
  4. a better appreciation for food
  5. Responsibility and self-reliance
  6. the joy of reward after hard work

We are offering a sensorial learning experience for small children through this program. Click here to enroll your child!

About Kinder gardeners' program

Once enrolled, 20 children will be allotted a 3X3 sq.ft patch each, to grow their leafy vegetables. They will be given a harvest program for 30 days (a typical Green leafy harvest cycle). They will be guided by our farming team members and OES team members on natural farming techniques. They will have sensorial learning from observing soil preparation, seeding, tending, weeding, plant health care, and harvesting. They will have to visit the patch (along with their parent/guardian) every weekend during designated hours and care for their crops.  

For this Batch, there are 20 slots only. We are opening the program to 6-8 years age group starting on 18th Sept 22, Sunday.
