Sustainable farming should be taught as a subject at the school level, feels actress Bhumi Pednekar. Her observation comes after the actress did some reading to develop a small garden along with her mother at home during the lockdown.
Bhumi believes that if the subject is taught at school then the “future generations can actually practice farming and growing, as opposed to feeling it’s something very complex and tough and only meant for farmers”.
“Today, I wish I had learned more about growing and farming in school. We have no understanding of how to nurture and grow plant, grains and crop. It’s taken me a lot of reading and studying of something that should be knowledge received at lower education level,” Bhumi Pednekar added, revealing her personal experience at farming.
Bhumi Pednekar, who calls herself a Climate Warrior feels imparting this kind of education at school level will help people empathise with our planet at a time when it is continuously battling challenges caused by pollution and climate change.
Bhumi Pednekar last featured in the 2020 films Bhoot – Part One: The Haunted Ship and Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan. The actress will soon star in Dolly Kitty Aur Woh Chamakte Sitare and Durgavati.
