Dipsites learn about Community Supported Agriculture
35 students of class VIII of Delhi Public School, Ranchi visited “Divyayan” a farm of Ram Krishna Mission on 11th December 20017.
The motive of the visit was to study about “Community Supported Agriculture”. This activity was undertaken for the project for “International School Award” conducted by British Council.
The Students visited “Divyayan” and interacted with the farmers and came to know about the farming techniques and the growing of different fruits and vegetables. They also learnt about animal husbandry which included apiculture, pisciculture, dairy farming and poultry.
The students gained firsthand experience of watching the animals and their feeding and caring techniques. The children specially enjoyed that part of their visit where they got information about animal husbandry.
The farmers shared their experience of getting support from the community in financial terms, because the consumers paid them before the product is ready to be marketed. In fact the demand for their goods was so much that people had to wait maximum 15 days to get the farm produce. The best part is that if due to any reason the produce is destroyed or damaged, even then the farmers don’t have to bear the loss as the community is there to support them. This gives the farmers a lot of financial security.
Dr. Ram Singh the Principal of the school feels that such kind of activities and projects help the students to stay connected to the roots and helps them know and understand more about the agricultural methods used in India.
At the end of the trip the students shared their views and said that the trip has helped them to realize how much pain and hard work the farmers have to undergo to provide us with basic food items. They also got a chance to understand the various steps followed in agriculture.
