We were a team on a mission and the students’ determination was at another high. Perhaps, that’s why the rain finally decided to stop and let us get on with our big task at hand. With a relatively clear morning and noon, we got a good amount of time to sow our seeds.

An, we were of to a good start!

We finished with our sowing and took off for a very late lunch. To our fortuity, the rains started doing what it does best just the minute we got back from the school. Our first thought was that of the shed! (C’mon, it had to stay up this time, we did everything right!) A quick call to the school principal confirmed that it was enduring the rains very well and it is going to last this time around indeed!

it would be a good time to mention that the girls of 6th grade barely gave the boys a chance to show their skills on the organic patch. They enjoyed every bit of the sowing!

That’s the first from our little organic adventure.

Even with the dampening weather, our hopes and spirits were high and we were sure our Barbatti was going to fare well.

So, what’s on our menu this season? Right from Methi and Palak to Bhindi, Barbati and Muli.

Stay tuned to find out what’s up next for and from our kitchen garden on #theorganicdiaries!

(The E-Base program is all about putting into practice learnings at the E-base. Our modules are well complemented by hands- on and practical implementations through our projects in schools we associate with. The three main projects for this year- organic gardening, composting and energy generation through a bicycle aim to drive home the necessity of a commitment towards sustainability and environmental conservation.)
