As a part of the project ‘ Contextualising Education with Farming and Ecology’, a polyhouse was constructed in school premises for conducting farm based learning activities. Agriculture is the most important aspect of rural life. Using agricultural and natural resources as a medium for contextualising the curriculum could, therefore, provide an avenue through which children can have repeated experiences to develop their cognitive, physical and social skills.
In Spite of the national lockdown, the activities of the school's polyhouse have started off well. Frequent rainfall resulting in availability of water this season has resulted in fixing issues of water availability . Initial setup which includes soil work, raising beds,tilling, applying of compost, etc have been completed. Seedlings of brinjal, tomatoes, capsicum, cucumber, pumpkin and bottle gourd have been planted. Monsoons are the upcoming season for rapid growth of certain plants, hence the farm activities are carried out by our team members until we involve students from our school.
