Permaculture Farm at RVS & Educational Visits

Permaculture Farm at RVS

Cultivating a child’s nutritional habits, Environmental knowledge, and Sustainability practices. In the campus, about half an acre land area is dedicated to Permaculture farm that allows educators incorporate hands on activities by providing a dynamic environment to students to observe, discover, experiment, nurture and learn sustainable farming practices. It is a living laboratory where lessons are drawn from real life experiences rather than textbook examples, allowing student to become active participants in the learning process.

Permaculture is an innovative framework for creating sustainable systems. It is a philosophy of working with rather than against nature. It gives a way to achieve high yields and productivity while doing it in a more sustainable and environmental friendly way than conventional farming methods. It applies more holistic approach to farming crops or livestock.

Through the farm, students gain an understanding of ecosystems, an appreciation for food origins and nutrition, and knowledge of plant and animal life cycles. At the same time, they learn practical horticultural skills that last a lifetime. It connects students with sustainable practices of plantation and they also learn to cook food with vegetables grown in school.

Many teachers use farm as a laboratory to introduce students to scientific methods through plant related experiments. Additionally, it provides a place to study weather, insects, soil and other environmental factors. It’s an ideal habitat model for studying ecosystems.

Beyond academics, the farm provides broader life lessons of how to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Students get an opportunity to be a part of the full food cycle, from seed to table. Students gain an understanding of and appreciation for the cultivation of food crops, along with a respect for local farmers. They learn valuable science concepts through observation and experimentation. By learning to prepare nutritious meals, the students are armed with the knowledge and skills to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Through gardening, students become responsible care takers.

Benefits of PERMACULTURE

  • Reduced water usage Permaculture is big on capturing resources like rainwater or solar electricity so that they can be used later as needed. Utilisation of stored rain water saves a lot of cost while watering the crops and also avoid water wastage.
  • Permaculture is cost effective Permaculture is more cost effective than growing plants conventionally. It avoids usage of pesticides and fertilisers thereby saving cost. It requires less maintenance than conventional method.
  • Less pollution It is a more natural way of growing food and use of any motorised farm equipment is less.
  • Reduced waste Garden waste, leaves, table scraps and other waste products turns into fertiliser or food for livestock.

Educational Visits @ Raj Vedanta school

By designing, cultivating, and harvesting farm through permaculture, students experience deeper understanding of natural systems and become better stewards of the earth. There is no better environment than the garden in which to plant the seeds of knowledge, experience the joy of learning, and harvest a bountiful crop of lifelong learners.

educational visit

No knowledge in the world is complete without travelling, observing and experiencing the rich and diverse culture of different places. Industry and local visits are organised for younger students where as educational tours will be organised for students of higher grade in order to widen their horizon, enhance their perspective, experience new environment.
