ssis-students-creating-organic-fertilizers-for-school-farmAs part of the Farm to School project, the Primary School pupils at Shanghai Singapore International School Minhang Campus have been trying to create organic fertilizers for the school farm by tending to a number of earthworm compost bins and by burying unwanted organic matter into plots set aside for soil enrichment. To assist the process further, the 6th Graders started an initiative to encourage students and faculty to deposit unfinished vegetables in the containers placed at the canteen during lunchtimes.

The SSIS Farm to School project is a collaboration between Shanghai Singapore international School (SSIS) and the Mahota Farm. Through this project, the SSIS students are involved in creating and maintaining an organic farm on the campus. This whole-school approach to farming enables integration of farming experiences into the curriculum. The school farm provides the ideal context to enrich ‘learning beyond the classroom’, and the students have fun learning many different skills associated with environmental sustainability.
