Life on a Farm

Do our kids know about agriculture? This may sound like an odd question to you, but unfortunately the fact is that most of our children don’t understand where their food comes from. Hence, this concept of “life on a farm”, has been designed that will involve visiting and working on a farm where the child will get actively involved in agricultural activities of the farm. Through this concept, we can draw relevance to them and educate them where the food on their plates come from and make them understand that all starts as a product of agriculture, from planting seeds to checking out vegetables and fruits.
