The group has represented the journey of food to their plate. Each patch of land represents a stage of this process.               Their model farm consists of tilling the land, seed sowing, irrigating, growth, harvest, removal of wheat from husk,           grinding to make flour finally reaching their plate at their homes in form of a chapatti. Their project is an apt                             representation of their awareness towards the process how food reaches theirs and their communities’ plates.

The painting shows crops grown in different seasons in farms across their region. Using their creativity, they are            showing the importance of each crop to maintain the level of nutrients of their soil. They are also trying to show                   how engaging in crop rotation is providing food security to families across the world. The students have tried to                     build a macro picture of benefits of growing food crops along with organic cotton in alternate seasons.

This vibrant painting shows the external factors that are affecting organic farming activities although organic                       farming positively impacts their communities. First picture (from left, in upper half) shows the lifecycle of a crop.             Second one shows how vermiculture is helping with their farming activities by increasing soil nutrients.                              Third one depicts how grass, hay, bran, husk, etc coming out as waste from farms is used by animals as fodder.               The first picture in the lower half shows how industrial pollutants are negatively affecting their farm lands.                             The other two pictures below depict their use of food crops in daily lives as meals, fruits, etc.
