In observance of International E-Waste Day, Organo Et School organized an Eco-community event at L&T Serene County in Hyderabad on 15 Oct’22. The event had a bouquet of Earth friendly workshops for kids and adults to participate and learn about sustainability.
The first workshop was conducted by Ms. Anurag Dahiya, an art and nature enthusiast. This workshop, "Botanical Illustrations in Nature Art” was a big hit amongst all kids aged 4 to 14 years, alike. They all used real leaves, pebbles and twigs from the L&T gardens near the swimming pools area, to create compositions and drawings.
This was followed by the Snakes Awareness and Protection session by Friends of Snakes Society. This was the most awaited program for the day, as the kids were very excited to see live snakes. They learnt how to protect the snakes and be safe themselves in case they happen to come across a snake while playing in the society gardens. FOSS volunteers explained the nuances of snake habitats and habits, while exhibiting the real snakes in front of an audience of kids as well as adults. They went in detail on how to differentiate a venomous snake from a non-venomous snake. The expressions from the kids were worth seeing during this session.
Ensuring to help the residents, form a connection with natural farming, Organo Et School organised a DIY Jeevamrutham making session. This was conducted by OES farm manager Mr.Venkaesh Nallamilli, at the pool side venue. All the participants were given individual material kits to learn this process. He guided each one to mix the ingredients in proper proportions. The jeevamrutham prepared by the participants was given to them in glass bottles to take back home. This solution is to be kept for fermentation for 10-15 days, with regular shaking. Care must be taken to open the lid frequently during the fermentation process, to release the extra gas being formed.
Besides the workshops, Organo Et School had invited Organo Farm Store to put up a stall for introducing and selling Natural farm produce to residents. There was a food stall as well, selling Vegan Food from God’s Own Office café at Organo Antharam. This was a big success, as the participants loved the healthy food items served there.
At the end of the program kids as well as their parents appreciated the knowledge-sharing methods by OES and showed keen interest in Sapthapadha-based workshops and programs run by OES.
