Organo Et School (OES) was part of Goodseeds Earth Mela at Saptaparini, Hyderabad on 28th Aug 2022. OES participated in this Earth Mela with a purpose, spreading awareness about conservation of Earth and Natural farming.

OES participation in this event was in the form of a stall, offering activities for children and adults based on Sapthapadha - the 7 strands of sustainability.

As part of this, Organo et School set up a stall for kids activity, where they were asked to pick activity sheets created with Earth and conservation theme. Kids happily picked up multiple sheets along with coloring material, and got busy with writing letters, making small posters or matching nature prompt and images on these sheets. And the outcome of this activity was an eclectic mix of thoughtful efforts related to saving the earth.  

Second activity was related to natural farming, making Jeevamrutham a biofertilizer. Kids and adults participated with equal enthusiasm in this activity. OES farm Manager Venkatesh Nalamilli conducted the activity, leading all the participants in this DIY activity. Each participant was assigned a working platform. They all mixed natural ingredients like cow dung, cow urine, gramflour, jaggery & soil in proportion as suggested by Venkatesh to make a slurry. This slurry was then diluted with water and then kept for 10 days, for fermenting. Each of them was given a 1-liter glass bottle to fill in the Jeevamrutham they made during this workshop. This bottle even had a sticker reading ‘I  made Jeevamrutham’, and kids really enjoyed writing their names on the stickers and owned these bottles with pride.

At the OES stall, the adults liked the display of seeds, soil mix ingredients and seed pouches and got interested in the demo. Venkatesh Nalamilli  demonstrated making the correct soil mix for sowing seeds and saplings in home and kitchen gardens. The soil mix ingredients like red soil, vermicompost, cocopeat, neemcake powder must be added in correct proportions to get healthy growth of plants in the home garden. In addition to this, OES distributed seed pouches for coriander, spinach, amaranthus, fenugreek, dil to interested stall visitors, to facilitate start of their successful gardening journey.

OES’s intent and promise for spreading awareness and education on sustainability in Hyderabad continues with successful completion of another earth friendly event, Goodseeds Earth Mela at Saptaparini, Banjahills.
