  • Billabong High International School Vadodara collaborates with Savitri Urban Food Forest to promote permaculture on school campus

    Published on March 21, 2023

    With a focus on protecting and nurturing the environment, the Grade 9 students of Billabong High International School (BHIS) Vadodara have come together to foster a sustainable ecosystem with a first-of-a-kind green initiative at school.

    The ‘Billabong Green Spartan Club’ of BHIS in association with the Savitri Urban Food Forest are promoting Permaculture to convert a barren piece of land into a self-sufficient and sustainable organic farm. This form of agriculture draws inspiration from nature to develop synergetic farming systems based on crop diversity, resilience, natural productivity, and sustainability.

    Elaborating on the cause, Principal, Priti Shrimal, BHIS Vadodara, said, “As educators, it is important to lead by example. At Billabong High International School, we are committed to nurturing the environment along with the young minds around us. Such initiatives and collaborations enable our Billabongers to make a positive impact on the community at a local level. Teaching sustainability in schools will prepare future generations with the right knowledge, skills, attitudes, and values needed to create a sustainable future. Imagine the collective impact that educators, students, and parents can make towards building a greener future.”
