Seeds of Hope, Gardens of Hope: students from Gayatri Association, Neyagaon and Sigilaval primary schools start Gardens of Hope

Posted on Thursday, March 24th, 2011

Little Farmers: Students from Gayatri Association learn about Gardens of Hope at Bija Vidyapeet and prepare for their very own Garden of Hope

We started with Gayatri, an association providing education to children from slums. Within one day, we met the fifty children of the association, gave presentations and did activities with different groups throughout the day. We also had a look at their schoolyard to get ideas for planning their garden and started weeding with the kids, as well as started a compost pile. The kids were very enthusiastic and energetic.
