From Farm to Table

From Farm to Table

Children learn from growing plants
People of all ages can enjoy gardening, but children in particular will have lots of fun and gain special benefits. Gardening is educational and develops new skills including:
-Responsibility – from caring for plants
-Understanding – as they learn about cause and effect (for example, plants die without water, weeds compete with plants)
-Self-confidence – from achieving their goals and enjoying the food they have grown
-Love for nature – a chance to learn about the outdoor environment in a safe and pleasant place
-Nutrition – learning about where fresh food comes from.

Students took an initiative, planted the fenugreek seeds and watered them daily. Later, they plucked out the fresh leaves and kneaded the dough while adding spices for ‘Thepla’ and relished it in school meal.
