Planting the seeds for sustainability

Students planting vegetables in the school yard

 

Sustainability is a principle that RDF tries to bring about in every aspect of its functioning. At RDF Wadlakonda School, this principle is being applied to food sustainability. Students are not only showing interest in education, but are actively participating in growing vegetables in the school yard. The students tilled the land and planted green gram seeds, along with this they also procured bottle and ridge gourd seeds from their parents and planted them. The students’ parents also offered cattle to enable the land to be well tilled. The students at the school will within a month reap the benefits of their effort by using the produce from the farm fresh food in the midday meals served in the school. We will keep you posted on what the farm yields and how it was used in the midday meals – stay tuned!
