On February 14th, more than 60 first-grade students from Sreenidhi International School visited Organo Antharam to gain insight into the integration of sustainable practices within an eco-community. Upon arrival, our team warmly greeted the children and introduced them to the concept of the seven strands of sustainability.

The students were then split into two groups. One group engaged in hands-on activities focused on soil, while the other embarked on a field trip around the community.

During the field trip, students learned about the food strand, observing how food is cultivated at Organo Antharam using natural fertilizers and polyhouse farming techniques. 

They also explored the earth strand, discovering the benefits of mulching, natural fertilizers, and tree planting for the environment. Additionally, they gained insights into the energy strand through the study of solar panels, the air strand through biofences, and the importance of afforestation areas. Practical examples within the community illustrated concepts related to shelter, people, and water strands.

Meanwhile, students participating in the soil experiment learned how to assess soil texture using the Mason Jar Test. 

They discovered the various types of soil found across India and their suitability for plant growth. Properties of loamy, clayey, and sandy soils were also explored.

After each group completed their respective activities, they exchanged experiences. During their departure, the students shared their newfound knowledge and experiences with us.
