On June 18, 2023, we conducted sustainability workshops for children and adults at Aparna Cyber Commune. The workshops were aimed to introduce sustainable living through experiential learning.

We received a good response from the residents of Aparna Cyber Commune. Children enthusiastically participated in the “Painting with leaves” workshop. Our art expert Mrs. Resham guided the children in drawing butterflies with leaves using natural colors.

Children enjoyed this workshop and took their beautiful paintings to their homes. 

Adults gathered around our farming expert Mrs. Sreedevi Ande, who demonstrated how to start kitchen gardening. She explained how to make a good soil mix using compost, soil, sand, cocopeat, and neem cake. She also showed how to use neem oil as a pesticide, jeevamrutham as a natural fertilizer, and buttermilk as a fungicide.. The participants asked many questions, and Mrs. Sreedevi answered them all patiently.

Later the participants prepared jeevamrutham, by mixing soil, besan, jaggery, cow dung, and cow urine. Mrs. Sreedevi Ande explained the significance of jeevamrutham in natural farming and its soil-enriching properties. After preparing it, each participant took a bottle of it to their home in order to use it for their plants.

Children and adults joyfully participated in the seed identification game where they have to identify 5 seeds correctly out of 14 seeds. Most of the participants identified more than 5 seeds and won leafy green seed pouches as gifts.

Altogether 50+ residents of Aparna Cyber Commune participated in our workshop and showed their willingness to be part of our farm programs. We were extremely thankful to Priya Bhati for being a great support to us in organizing this event. We want to thank all the participants for making this event successful with their enthusiastic participation.
