Last year, Anjali House decided to create a sustainable garden in the school. The purpose of the Anjali House’s garden project is to use the produce from the garden as part of our nutrition program and teach organic gardening to our students.
Our Basic Care program includes two free meals a day. Anjali House’ students aged from 3 to 19 years old need to have nutritious meals to develop into healthy young adults.
The Anjali House garden provides a wide variety of organically grown fruits and vegetables to ensure a daily healthy meal to our 120 students.
The garden is also a way to raise awareness about sustainable farming practices, protecting the environment, how to grow food organically and teach them valuable lesson in teamwork, leadership, agriculture and community service. Gardening is giving them a key to a good, natural and healthy nutrition.
Annie, our garden Volunteer explains: “Through gardening, children are learning also how to take care of things. Like any human, every plant needs to eat and drink to grow. The kids are fascinated by seeing a seed grow up and become a plant which gives fruits and vegetables. It is also a way for them to understand how much it is important to take care of them.”
