It was for the first time that we had planned to plant onions as a single crop on separate beds for individual students of classes VI and VII. The seedlings were ready but the beds were to be prepared. Our gardening teacher was guiding students in preparatory work. Though a head teacher, I too was as new to this as were my students. I was curious to know and join the group. When I reached the garden I saw children totally enjoying the work. They had loosened the soil and the beds were flooded with water and were pounding soil and water with their feet to make it muddy and they were enjoying the whole process thoroughly. They were not bothered about their clothes getting soiled in the whole process. Finally, the prepared onion seedlings were transplanted. The school had got a good yield of onion crop last year. These organically grown onions were used in school kitchen and some sold to the teachers.
