Taking care of a parcel to grow fruits, vegetables and flowers in a sustainable way for 6 months (this year was from April to November) and even explaining the judges how they did it, the students learn how to cultivate their own food as well as think of new creative ways to better this practice.

The winners’ schools’ teachers have the opportunity to travel to Thailand, to assist the Saraburi Thailand EM Technology Nature Farming Workshop, also held every year, to learn more about sustainable farming and new EM applications.
