The Organic Diaries- Step 6: The Patient Tending

September 20, 2013 • Posted in: News, The Organic Diaries, Workshops

We’re all well aware of how good the soil and climate is in Pench. In fact, the day after we sowed, we saw that some of our seeds had sprouted! Given the terrible monsoon conditions, we knew we had to be patient and be open to some amount of failure. None the less, we hoped for the best.

Our students diligently took care of their patches and we were looking forward to a good set of vegetables! We could feel it- we were definitely going to have a good set of vegetables! After all, the students had put in such an effort!

Just a few days later, we had tiny little methi and bhindi plants coming up on our patch.

The methi growing beautifully!

Here are some photos of the plants just two weeks after the seeds were sown.

The barbati was a success too!

The students have a routine of tending to the garden right after their morning assembly. With organised groups and report sheets, the students have a foolproof plan for their garden.

(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.)
