On the 22nd of September, 62 8th-graders from Sreenidhi International School visited Organo's 3rd Eco-habitat to gain an understanding of how sustainability is integrated into the eco-community.
Their trip commenced with an introduction to the seven strands of sustainability by Mr. Srinath Manda, our General Manager. He discussed how we naturally produce food, regenerate the earth, utilize solar energy, implement clean air strategies, design shelters, employ water harvesting strategies, and emphasize the importance of community members. Following this concise introduction, the students were divided into two groups.
One group accompanied Mr. Srinath to explore polyhouse farming, natural agriculture, and the creation of Jeevamrutham. The other group joined Mrs. Susmita and Mr. Prabhakar to learn about solar power generation, water harvesting methods, and the community's design elements.
In the polyhouse, Mr. Srinath explained the significance of the structure, how it enhances soil fertility, and the various crops cultivated within.
They were shown the bio fencing surrounding the community and its contributions to improving air quality and other benefits. Near the farming area, they were educated about the strategies employed in Organo Antharam to maintain fertile soil and the importance of natural food production.
Finally, they visited the lawn area near the clubhouse where they personally crafted Jeevamrutham.
Meanwhile, the 2nd group of students with Mr. Prabhakar delved into solar power generation within the community.
They witnessed the functional construction of car parking areas with solar panels shading the area.
At one of our cluster clubs, they observed the architecture aimed at enhancing social interactions among residents. Information was provided about how houses were designed to act as natural coolers, improving ventilation and daylight. Additionally, they explored bio pools and discussed their significance.
Upon completing one round of activities, the students enjoyed snacks at Rurban Hive. Subsequently, the two groups swapped experiences. Following the conclusion of all activities, they received a bottle of Jeevamrutham to use at home for their plants and an energy tracker to monitor their electricity consumption patterns and reduce energy usage. Several teachers and students provided feedback. The children bid us farewell with smiles of appreciation.
We extend our gratitude to the 8th-grade teachers for affording us the opportunity to showcase sustainability in action.
