LEARNING AND RESOURCE CENTRE
A small resource-cum-learning centre has been set up in Nagavalli (72 kms from Mysore). The centre has a small library and some learning and creative arts resources for children, youth and those interested in sustainable agriculture and resource management. A demonstration plot showcases growing of vegetables, fruits and medicinal plants. Rain water harvesting, compost and natural pesticide production are also demonstrated here. The centre also serves as the classroom and learning site for the Integrated Learning Programme. Over the years, the centre has conducted short programmes for youth (Yuva Chetana) in various parts of the district and in some parts of Karnataka. A small seed bank has been initiated and is now being developed with the support of VANASTREE.
