Growing and Greening the Environment



All RDF schools have flourishing kitchen gardens which not only provide valuable skills to students in understanding the lifecycle of plants and growing a vegetable garden, but also provides greens and other vegetables for the Midday Meal Program. RDF supports the Tech Mahindra Foundation sponsored Zila Parishad High School in Bahadurpally and this alliance has now gone a step forward by creating a kitchen garden in the school premises. The students and staff worked enthusiastically to prepare the beds, plant seeds and saplings, nurturing their garden which resulted in a rich yield of nearly 20 kgs of green vegetables like Thotakura, Methi, Palakura and Gongura! These have been used twice for the midday meal service in the school.  We congratulate the school team on their positive efforts, learning new skills which will go a long way in creating a healthy and thriving environment in the school.
