"Keep Soil Alive"
It nourishes our plants, stores water, and supports all wildlife…but we don’t often think about it because it’s underneath our feet. Want to take a guess as to what we are talking about? YES, SOIL!
We often take life so much for granted that we forget about the things that make it possible in the first place. The humble soil is an example of that. Without it, it wouldn’t have been possible for us to grow food, build important structures or even craft earthen utensils. Hence, considering this and to inculcate the values from the childhood the learners were taken outside the classroom with the nature to feel the MOTHER EARTH.
World Soil Day is celebrated on December 5th to emphasize the importance of soil. It aims to raise awareness about the importance of soil and its sustainable use for life and livelihood. Educators schooled about the different types of soil available and what crops can be grown on it. Clip of how to make soil fruitful was also shown to learners. An oath was taken by all the participants as follows
- We will take care of our soil as our ‘Mother’
- We will nourish our ‘Mother Earth’
Thus, The World Soil Day was the great opportunity to lead the learners to conserve the soil for the better future.
