At Kalpavriksha Farms, we offer farming program to school students that integrates well with the school curriculum through our “Teach Farming Initiative”. This is an ongoing program at Sai Sankalp which started this year. Sai Sankalp Nursery and Primary School is run by a trust, that serves free values based education to rural poor.

It’s a pleasure to be part of a school team that believes in holistic development and future ready kids by providing them 21st century skills. And by that, I don’t mean just tech savvy kids… because that’s all we think of when we say “21st century skills”. But that’s not it!
They need to know how their food grows and what it takes to grow it. Look what’s happened when we outsourced it? Only then will they appreciate what nature does for us and how we need to live in harmony with it. We aren’t going to achieve anything if nature decides otherwise.
Look around! We have enough proof for that, isn’t it?
Learning to grow your own food is a life-skill that needs to be taught to our children to ensure we provide them with all the necessary skills to thrive in harmony with nature.
