Early in the morning on a Sunday, the stalls decked up and lots of grade 4 student volunteers gave the participating members a helping hand in organising the winter Bazaar at Sloka School. By 10:30 am visitors started coming to the school, which had transformed into a soul santa of some sort. 

On Sunday the 4 December, by 10:00 am Organo Et School was also all set to conduct sustainability-oriented workshops as part of their stall at Sloka School Winter Bazaar. This Winter bazaar is hosted by parents of Sloka school grade 4 students, every year to spread awareness and information about eco-living concept among the visitors to the bazaar. It is a no-plastic event, where sustainable living is promoted by inviting vendors and NGO’s working towards this cause and in this space.


Organo Et school conducted many rounds of Jeevamrutham workshops for kids and adults spread over the entire duration of the event. This workshop saw a lot of enthusiastic participants both children and adults, make jeevamrutham and take it along for their plants back home. It was very encouraging to see over 40 people make jeevamrutham at the workshop that day.

Another interesting workshop ‘Kitchen Gardening’ was conducted twice for the visitors who were interested in learning about gardening and starting it at their homes. OES Farm Manager and expert Mr. Venkatesh Nallamilli very effectively demonstrated the steps involved in gardening green leafys. He showed how to prepare the soil mix by adding soil, sand, vermicompost, and urban compost in correct proportions for preparing a fertile medium to grow leafy vegetable seeds. Sowing and watering in the correct manner go a long way in deciding the germination and health of vegetable crops. He essentially guided the participants to learn the natural ways of pest control and using bio-fertilizers for growing their vegetables following the natural and chemical-free farming route. Each participant got a starter kit and an instructions manual for Kitchen Gardening.

A little later OES art expert Anurag Dahiya conducted the 'Art in Nature' workshop for kids in the age group of 4-14 years. She had planned a very simple but interesting creative session for the kids. All of them enjoyed making colorful compositions with watercolours on greeting card sheets. Some very beautiful artworks were created during this workshop which lasted for an hour and a half. Around 50 kids participated in this art and painting activity done with leaves used as stencils.

A lot of parents visited the Organo Et School stall, and expressed their interest in enrolling their children in OES Farm programs in the new year. 

These programs will be:

Kinder Gardener Farm Program for 4-8 years of age.  (Duration 1 month)

Be a Farmer Program for 9-14 years of age. (Duration 2 months)

Be A Farmer Program-Teens for 15-19 years of age. (Duration 1 month)

Vegetables and Greens Harvest Program for families. (One or half a day program)

Over 150 families visited the OES stall during this event. It was very interesting to learn that a lot of families value the importance of moving to a more sustainable way of life and wanted to put in their bit to make the Earth better for generations to come.
