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 next “Kinder-gardeners” program at OES Children’s Farm.

Here is why 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 leafys. 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 the 4-8 years age group on Sundays.

What we can provide

  1. Approx.3X3 sq.ft farm patch for each child to farm on during the program duration of 30 days (5-week leafy crop cycle, seed to harvesting)
  2. Seasonal saplings and seeds (2-leafys), bio-fertilizers, and basic natural farming guidance on what to do on the weekend.
  3. Farming coach, who will guide children on the activities for these crops
  4. Professionals, who will introduce children to seven strands of sustainability through various workshops like visit to goshala and learn about biogas plant solar power generation & learn painting with natural colors
  5. Informal seating for parents/guardians under a tent near the farm patches

What the children are requested to do

  1. Engage in farming tasks such as soil preparation, seeding, weeding, tending, growing, harvesting, and more
  2. Come and leave at a designated time every weekend to tend to their farm patch
  3. Bring their own gardening tools (gloves, spades, watering cans, child-safe scissors), and apt attire (including weather-appropriate gear & sturdy boots/shoes)
  4. Follow farm-friendly behavior
  5. Bring food, drinking water & snacks for themselves
  6. Bring hand towels and cloth napkins.
  7. Bring paper/cloth bags to carry the fresh produce harvested by them and take it back home

At the end of the Crop Cycle, the children would

  1. Have sensorial learning on raising seasonal leafy greens
  2. Have gained an introduction to natural farming methods
  3. Get a certificate from OES on course completion
  4. Get featured on the OES website and Social Media Channels recognizing their efforts
