Finally, the sun was out, the farm was dry and the beds were ready. With a quick clean-up of weeds and overgrowth, our farm coaches and kids were ready for sowing...At OES, we continue to admire the enthusiasm and resilience with which the parents and children participate in the program, despite the multiple flooding. It goes to show how much we want our children to learn and navigate real world experience of reward and perseverance. It makes us want to continue to work hard to deliver a solid and natural learning experience.
With seeds of chukkakura, thotakura, gongura, coriander for green leafy vegetables and beetroot and carrot for microgreens, we were set for the children to return to the farm. Nothing could have been the joy with which the children came back and immediately deep dived into 1) loosening the soil, 2) sowing the seeds, and 3) watering the beds.
During session conclusion, children were asked to continue these exercises in the logbook and send the pictures to us. All in all, there were a lot of queries and experience sharing amongst them and with us.
