For Kahariam education is something we hold closely to our hearts because with education comes improvement and improvement is something we like to see in all things, from plant production to the output of our country’s youth. Education is a main pillar of our mission, which is why we offer our farm tours.
Kids from the grade school of Tagaytay Montessori got to witness first hand what our beautiful farm has to offer. The kids with parents and teachers in tow arrived in the early afternoon while the sun was still high in the sky shining over our 18 hectare organic farm. After a quick orientation and an offering of fresh juices and salad fresh from our farm the kids began their tour. Their were a lot of them, 120 in total and then split in to 4 groups of 30. Each group started in a different area of the farm with a different schedule of activities so all the kids could enjoy all our farm had to offer with enough attention to learn and appreciate what they were doing.
The activities the kids got to enjoy were, harvesting lettuce, planting various seeds, riding our carabaos, and feeding our native pigs. The children thoroughly had a blast with all the activities smiling ear to ear and laughing all the while experiencing a fun educational field trip. Apart from the activities, the students also got to learn from our guides about earthworm and vermicast production and the role it has in not only our farm but the world. The children learned about how the earthworms break down our waste and produce our vermicast which we then use to grow our farm fresh organic produce. The guides also educated the kids on the importance of clean energy showing the children Kahariam’s ram pump, solar panels, and windmills that all help run our farm cleanly and efficiently.
At the end of the day the kids were tired but still had smiles on their faces while carrying the lettuce they harvested themselves back to their school buses, we said good bye.
If you want your kids to have the same opportunity to experience the wonders our 18 hectare organic farm has to offer tell their school to book a field trip with us today!
