Nagaland School Kids Grow Their Own Organic Mid-Day Meals, Inspire Whole Village

Away from the hullabaloo of urban life, the quaint village of Viswema lies nestled in the Purvanchal Himalayas of Nagaland. Home to around 7,500 people, the sparsely populated hamlet is well-known in the North-East for its pottery craft and panoramic beauty. 

Most of the agriculture is done through terrace cultivation along the hill slopes, using conventional methods. However, in the past few years, K Khel Government Middle School (GMS) in Viswema, has been a trendsetter in farming. The 60-odd students of the school have been practising organic farming as an integral part of their curriculum.
