On November 14, Colle Farmers Market responds to an article published by New Straits Times which reports that The Consumers’ Association of Penang (CAP) conducted a workshop with the children of Vision Home Orphanage educating the children on the importance of organic farming. Colle highlights the orphanage’s efforts and encourages organic farming everywhere.

According to the New Straits Times, children aged 3 to 16 of the Vision Home Orphanage got their hands dirty with CAP to learn all about organic farming. The New Strait Times reported that “[b]esides their encounter with hundreds of red worms and insects which were useful to organic farming, the children also learned how to recycle kitchen waste such as vegetable and fruit peels into nutrients for the plants through the seven-pot composting system and the ring garden technique.”

CAP, according to the New Strait Times’ interview with senior education officer N.V. Subbarow, “is on a mission to create awareness of the wonders of organic farming and the importance of recycling among children and adults alike. We want to encourage more families to move away from capital-intensive and chemical-based methods to low-cost, non-chemical and sustainable agriculture.

“Beside agriculture, we also advise everyone to use their kitchen waste for making organic compost or [fertilizers],” Subbarow stated. CAP, according to Subbarow’s interview, “is also teaching housewives and farmers to start and manage their own vegetable and herb garden or corner.”

Colle salutes CAP in their effort to educate youth in organic farming. Colle Farmers Market wishes to educate everyone about organic farming and lifestyle in hopes that organic food consumption is more than a specialty diet but a way of life. Colle congratulates Subbarow and his team and encourages them to continue educating youth about organic farming and its importance.
