We nurture green living in our campus by motivating learners to participate in organic gardening, fruit orchard, herbal garden, plant museums and much more.
Organic gardening, at Guru Shree Shanti Vijai Jain Gurukul, helps us to produce our own vegetables in an non-pesticide way, using only natural means. Guru Shree Shanti Vijai Jain Gurukul’s organic farm, we produce our own vegetable to build healthy and fit learners and individuals. Right from preparing the soil, to making good compost, choosing the right plants to planting crops in wide beds, prosper watering, weeding and protecting free of pesticides, and harvesting we use organic methods to work on the same.
An orchard is an intentional planting of trees or shrubs that is maintained for food production. Orchards comprise fruit or nut-producing trees which are generally grown for commercial production. Orchards are also sometimes a feature of large gardens, where they serve an aesthetic as well as a productive purpose. A fruit garden is generally synonymous with an orchard, although it is set on a smaller non-commercial scale and may emphasize berry shrubs in preference to fruit trees. We at Guru Shree Shanti Vijai Jain Gurukul have laid down a well planned fruit orchard to plan and start with.
Herbs are very easy to grow with a little sunshine, soil that drains well, some watering, and a little fertilizer or compost. Herbs can be grown in pots; however, the plants always prefer to be in the ground where they can spread out. Some plants grow quite large (4-6 feet), and when placed in pots they can become stunted and can get stressed, which causes them to be very unhappy. So prepare the soil, final steps is to plant healthy, strong plants, and water them as they get dry. We at Guru Shree Shanti Vijai Jain Gurukul have taken care to provide our learners with a herbal garden to benefit them as and when required.
At Guru Shree Shanti Vijai Jain Gurukul, as an extension of Organic garden and herbal garden, we have also set up plant museum which will also serve as lab for botany. Our learners will start observing and noting down the different types of plants which has been planted and set up here for the learning.
