With the dedicated efforts of teachers and students alike, the once barren land is now a veritable farm that grows vegetables like brinjal, bottle gourd, spinach, coriander, cucumber, and ridge gourd as well as fruits like banana and papaya.
Several educational institutions across India are going green and introducing intensive environment-centric initiatives which set the right example for children and help them to reconnect with nature.
An exceptional example amidst these schools and colleges is the 108-year-old government higher primary school in Mittur village near Mangaluru. Stretching across 4.5 acres, the area around the school once used to be barren and unused.
With the dedicated efforts of teachers and students alike, the barren land has been transformed into a veritable farm that harvests a yield amounting to approximately ₹3-4 lakh per year!
