On 24th June, Saturday, Organo Et School is at Hill Ridge Springs with workshops like painting with leaves, kitchen gardening and jeevamrutham making. We organized these workshops for both children and adults with the aim of promoting sustainable living through hands-on learning experiences.

Children eagerly engaged in the "Painting with Leaves" workshop. Under the guidance of our art expert, Mrs. Manoghnya, the children used natural colors and leaves to create beautiful butterfly drawings.This workshop proved to be a delightful experience for the children, who proudly took their paintings home with them.

Our farming expert, Mrs. Shilpa Teja, a practicing permaculturist, demonstrated the basics of kitchen gardening. She explained the process of creating a well-balanced soil mix using compost, soil, sand, cocopeat, and neem cake. The participants actively participated in the session, asking numerous questions that Mrs. Shilpa patiently answered. 

Afterward, the participants learned how to prepare jeevamrutham by combining soil, besan, jaggery, cow dung, and cow urine. Mrs. Shilpa Teja highlighted the importance of jeevamrutham in natural farming and its ability to enrich the soil. Each participant received a bottle of jeevamrutham to take home and use for their plants.

To add a touch of fun and education, we organized a seed identification game that both children and adults enjoyed. Participants were challenged to correctly identify five out of fourteen different seeds. Many of the participants surpassed this requirement and received leafy green seed pouches as prizes.

We want to say thanks to all the participants who have enthusiastically participated in these workshops.
