  VERMI COMPOSTING  
     
  Vermi composting is a very useful phenomenon of making compost out of dead leaves and grass. This concept was adopted almost five years back. The students of Class VIII at that time were assigned the duty of taking care of the pit and providing the worms with leaves to act upon and produce organic nutrient rich vermin compost.

The school has two pits. The first one is the house of the worms and the second is the kitchen. The kitchen is provided with leaves which are watered regularly for a fortnight before they are ready to be consumed by the worms. After 20 days it is discovered that the worms have already used the leaves and produced compost which is ready for use.

By the virtue of this vermin-composting, our School Garden tends to looks greener and butterflies are seen fluttering happily from flower to flower.

WATER HARVESTING

With the depleting level of ground water every year and the wastage of rain water, soon water, the elixir of life, will be in great shortage. Foreseeing this great need our School has undertaken Rain Water Harvesting Project as an integral part of its Environmental Conservation drive.

The operation and maintenance of this project rests on the shoulders of the ‘karamcharis’ who ensure the regular cleaning of the plant. The harvested rain water is used to maintain the splendid gardens and the lush green lawns.
