Chennai School Launches Budding Farmers Market for Students

In an innovative programme named the Budding Farmers Market conducted by  Orchids The International School’s Thoraipakkam branch,students grew their own produce in the school’s polyhouse and sold their crops to parents in a market-style setting.  The Budding Farmers Market event was a grand success with students demonstrating their knowledge and skills in horticulture and financial literacy.

The students formed different groups such as sales and marketing, studied rates in the market, and fixed prices for each crop. They presented the life cycle of crops, and harvesting techniques, and showcased their understanding of the importance of organic farming.

Environment for its students

Commenting on the event, Dr Jemi Sudhakar, Principal of Orchids The International School, Thoraipakkam branch, said, “The combination of horticulture and financial literacy curriculum has proved to be a huge success, and we hope to continue organizing such events in the future. 

Orchids The International School has always been committed to providing holistic education to its students. 
The Budding Farmer Activity is another example of the school's commitment to providing a stimulating and engaging learning environment for its students, said the school authorities.”
