On February 11th, we hosted a family Harvest Festival at our farm, aimed at introducing urban families to the joys of natural farming and harvesting. Upon their arrival, we provided an overview of Organo Et School's mission to promote eco-living habits.

To kick off the day's activities, we led the families on a tour of our farm, led by Ms. Sreedevi Ande. She showcased the various vegetables grown on our farm, including tomatoes, eggplants, cabbage, broccoli, and more. We also discussed our farming techniques, such as polyhouse farming and mandala gardening, as well as water management practices.

Following the tour, the families had the opportunity to participate in harvesting cabbage and cauliflower in our polyhouse, which was a hit with the children. 

Additionally, they harvested coriander and spinach, further engaging with the farming experience.

After the harvest, we demonstrated how to create a natural fertilizer called Jeevamrutham, explaining its benefits for soil health and microbial balance. 

We also provided a demonstration on starting kitchen gardening at home, equipping each family with a planter and seeds to begin their own home gardening journey.

Overall, the families thoroughly enjoyed the program and shared positive feedback with us, indicating a newfound appreciation for natural farming practices.
