Finally, learners learning in the farm

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. Keeping in mind that agriculture is the most important aspect of rural life, we use local agricultural practices and natural resources as a medium for contextualised learning. 

During the national lockdown, the activities of the school's polyhouse could not be conducted with the learners due to school closures. However, preparation tasks like raising beds,tilling, composting, etc were undertaken by the team. 12 beds were raised in the farm which included leafy winter vegetables- mustard, spinach, fenugreek, radish, carrot, beet  and herbs- sage, coriander, parsley, oregano, chives, rosemary, basil. 

As soon as the school reopened for the senior learners, they were taken to the farm and were introduced to their new learning space. Children were very excited for the upcoming sessions in the farm. A ' Seed Bank' has also been prepared for the children and over 40 different types of seeds have been collected from the local villages.
