One of the best ways to connect with children is by ‘sharing your love of nature with them’. If children are given the opportunity to experience nature, they have an innate sense of wonder for the earth and living things. The Resort, Madh-Marve is making the most of this sentiment that children have.

Ahead of World Earth Day, the resort held a unique three-day activity ‘grow your food’ that involved helping children reconnect with nature. Children in the age group of 6 to 15 gathered at the resort premises where they were taught to grow their very own patch of vegetables.

It is believed that children should be taught the importance of nature through fun educational activities, hands-on interactions with nature and teaching them about actions to protect the natural world. The idea behind the activity was to engage with young children and convey to them the importance of conserving and preserving nature through the vegetable growing activity.

Guiding the children was environment expert Hemant Dhavade who has over 10 years of experience in the field of horticulture.

The children were given vegetables like Cucumber, Lady’s Fingers, Tomatoes, Pumpkins, etc., which they planted in small patches in the gardens at the resort under the supervision of Dhavade. Many places these days are largely devoid of nature and children spend more time indoors, hindering their natural connection to the rhythms of nature. The resort is aiming to bring about a small change by helping children bond with nature.

To demonstrate support for environmental protection various events are held worldwide. Earth Day was first celebrated in 1970. It now includes events in more than 193 countries, which are coordinated globally by the Earth Day Network. However, the goal of the Earth Day Network is to diversify, broaden, and activate the environmental movement worldwide, through a combination of education, consumer campaigns, and public policy.

The theme for this year’s Earth Day is “It’s Our Turn to Lead.” The Resort’s initiative works in tandem with the theme where the young generation is taught to bring about changes in their lives to impact the environment and make the world a better, safer place for all the coming generations.
