Little Farmer encouraging children to become more environmentally conscious
At a series of sessions designed to connect children with the environment, children spent three hours learning about farming, making compost, identifying various insects, and were shown a live aquaculture demonstration featuring the eating habits of fish. Thirty children had the opportunity to get the taste of experience of firming. Read a press release, the sessions named ‘Little Farmer’ was organized by an urban farming collective ‘Nagarkrishi’, with the support of IPDC, and hosted at the British Council on Saturday. It is believed by Nagarkrishi that, children can become more attached to nature and the environment, and hence become likelier to want to protect and look after it through Little Farmer. It is trying to help children understand that nature is not far away. Even in cities, they can create their own green space right in their homes by growing a garden. There is a rise in adventure therapy and people are creating green schools and forest schools across the world, the statement continued. NagarKrishi plans to arrange more Little Farmer sessions and similar activities in near future.
