Sow Good Learning Farm

They have introduced the concept of farming and composting to children in schools to inculcate the habit of growing food and waste management.
They have 3 programs :
1. Govt school children – Open Classroom Learning through Farming. Students engage in the end-to-end process (finding space in schools, cleaning, sowing, maintaining plant/food growth, bio-pesticides and saving seeds). This program cycle is for 3 years. The school teachers are able to continue farming sessions with children. The endpoint in the intervention is for students to start urban farming in their homes. This enable farming to become a part of the school curriculum like music and sports.
2. Farms (Revenue Model) – They conduct weekly sessions at their farm space. Children from various private schools of Delhi come to learn & observe the process of food/plant growth. Through this, they try to sensitise urban children towards the importance and hardships of the farming process.
3.Corporate Program: (Revenue Model) – They create urban farming spaces in corporate offices that engages all employees of the company.
