Are you interested in farming? Do you want to feel the soil? Do you want to know where and how our food is grown? Do you have a farm? Are you interested to learning natural techniques to control pest and diseases in crops? Do you want your food free of chemicals? Then, be sure to enroll in the “Learn Polyhouse Farming Program” at Organo Et School (OES) Children’s Farm. STARTING Sunday, 8th May 2022.

3.     Farming teaches participants nature and weather awareness

4.     Farming teaches participants a better appreciation for food

5.     Farming teaches participants plant life-cycle and farm eco-systems

6.     Farming teaches participants responsibility 

7.     Farming teaches participants self-reliance

8.     Farming teaches participants resilience and problem-solving skills

We are offering an immersive learning experience for participants through Polyhouse Program.

About Learn Polyhouse Farming Program

Once enrolled, 25 participants will be allotted 48 sq. ft patch each to farm. They will be given a harvest program for 70 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, composting, mulching, weeding, plant health care, harvesting, plant maturity, to farm accounting. They will have to visit the patch every weekend during designated hours and care for their crops.  

Because this program is designed as a hands-on experience that will take participants through an entire Kharif crop cycle, we request the participants to come on every Sunday/Saturday (from the start to end) to tend to their respective farm patches. If the farm patch is left untended, weeds grow, crop cycle get disrupted, plants get impacted and learning is interrupted.

"Learn Polyhouse Farming Program": Batch-1, has only 25 slots. We are opening the program to age group 16 year old and above. For this 10-week program, there is a nominal fee of Rs.6,000/month, per participant.
