They were visiting with the aim to introduce organic farming to the already existing kitchen garden there.

One of the main focuses of the day was the reinstating of the use of the traditional Khasi Lunar Calendar. The team also spoke to the boys about the benefits of water management via the constructions of beds for rain water storage and distribution in the cultivated plot (kitchen Garden), which is about 1/10 of a hectare.

The initiative by GIZ is a zero budget programme directed towards creating awareness on nutritional security, planting methods and water management – basically endorsing technical assistance to the communities. The team is targeting the involvement of local farmers and stakeholders in this activity.
