Director General’s Meeting with Director Agriculture and Lok Sanjh Foundation for setting up “Model Agriculture Farms” at FDE’s Schools

Director Agriculture, along with Lok Sanjh Foundation, held a meeting with DG FDE and its team and presented details of a project regarding setting up of ‘Model Agriculture Farms’ at FDE schools; the project will be a joint effort of ICT Agriculture Directorate, DG FDE and Lok Sanjh Foundation. Initially a pilot will be run in 6 boys/girls schools of F-7, G-6, G-7 and G-9 sectors. Under the project, model agriculture farms will be set-up at 10-Marla plots of schools in order to orientate children with vegetable and fruits growing techniques. Seeds and Agri tools will also be freely distributed among children for replication of their learning at home. Eco clubs will be established; plantation and gardening in schools will be improved. Project will go a long way in promotion of kitchen gardening and urban farming among fertile minds of our future generation.
