Inclusive Social Awareness

World Soil Day (WSD) is held annually on 5 December as a means to focus attention on the importance of healthy soil and to advocate for the sustainable management of soil resources.

This year, by addressing the increasing challenges of soil management, the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) campaign “Keep soil alive, protect soil biodiversity” aims to raise awareness of the importance of sustaining healthy ecosystems and human well-being. By encouraging students to engage in proactively improving soil health

The Celebration

For celebrating World Soil Day we invited Mr.Sunil.G.Warang who is the gram panchayat secretary of Tulsuli village in Sindhudurg. Being a farmer himself he explained to us the importance of soil and how precious it is to the farmers. He also schooled us about the different types of soil available and what crops can be grown from it. Also an awareness of using organic products was given as the fertilizers might increase the production for a shorter period of span but, for the longer run it is dangerous as it degrades the quality of soil.

Students also contributed in raising the awareness about world soil day by sketching on the theme of soil biodiversity. Also few memories of them regarding soil was depicted via their childhood photos.
