Step 1 FEEL

Vegetables and other food produce sourced from outside are not always trusted to be wholesome from its source.

Virgin land bare and at the mercy of litters all around. Instead of leaving the land bare, students thought they might as well use the land for something more profitable and productive.

The whole school community. Their primary concerns were that the land was rather being littered with trash.


To clear the land. Pick scattered litters. Use land for a school farm.

In order to select our final solution, students had to actually clear the land, pick all trash and prepare the land for farming with the help of a farm expert.

Step 3DO

During one of our club activities, students tasked each other to participate in the clearing, picking and planting of the seedlings. They sort the help of their teachers and management to raise monies to buy essential farming tools and seedlings.

The results will be impactful when we harvest our farm produce and sell it within the school community including the school’s kitchen.


The school’s Principal: She was so impressed by how quick students were able to carry out the project with little help from the adults and got involved throughout.

Getting help from the farm experts was a bit of a challenge since students had to do a lot of convincing as to why they will want to grow their own food instead of outsourcing which is easier.


Responsible consumption and production

This project aligns with goal number 12 because we are to control whatever we produce and consume as a school community making sure it’s wholesome for everyone.

Step 4 SHARE

To be share by organizing sales of farm produce when they are harvested.

More than 100

To have this running quarterly to make sure the farm is always up and running.
