EcoKids thrives to connect the soul to the soil where every child learns the value of being a responsible and sensitive citizen of this planet. This is our home and we must love, care and protect for it. Every child could make a difference and through EcoKids, a child not just learns to give back but also enjoys his rendezvous with nature and the environment.

Where Nature and Science become best friends…

Eco Kids gives Bombay’s Urban kids an opportunity to experience growing their own plants, an activity which is missing in their lives currently. It is time for today’s Kids to realize the importance of a holistic and natural life. The cycle of what we grow is what we eat is explained to them so that they are more aware of the source of their food, thus instilling a sense of responsibility towards reducing food wastage. Through our workshops, we hope that the kids realize the sweat and toil that goes in the whole process of farming. Additionally, the importance of organic farming is explained with the aim of making their food choices more sustainable.
