OES organized a highly informative and interactive Kitchen Gardening 'Do-It-Yourself workshop' on 4th Dec 2021. The participants were an enthusiastic bunch of people from as far as Tokyo.
Our Gardening Expert Ms. Sreedevi Ande started the session by discussing the stages involved in setting up an Organic kitchen garden at home, be it a terrace of a balcony. Right from selecting the place to setup this garden, like a well-lit up place with ample natural light and air to pest control. She covered all important steps for setting up a kitchen garden and how to reap the vegetable harvest which is fresh and 100% organic.
This session involved using your own hands to work with soil, plants and seeds. All participants moved to the open area where each of them was given a grow bag, seeds, tiny and healthy saplings, gardening tools to plant in these grow bags. Ms. Sreedevi demonstrated the sowing of seeds and everyone followed her instructions. Once sowing and transplanting is done, watering is very crucial for proper rooting of the saplings. Having done that, our expert discussed several ways of organically nurturing these plants. Diverse types of organic manures and growth solutions made from natural sources were displayed and discussed. Even natural pest control methods were shown by using soap nuts, neem oil, eggshells, butter milk etc.
Ms. Sreedevi heard all the participants and answered all their queries. Each participant got to take a grow bag, seed pouches of their choice along with a Kitchen Gardening manual and Growth charts describing the growth cycle of each seed with them. OES ensures all participants should be well equipped to start implementing what they have learnt during the workshop, immediately on going back home..
