Street Play Performed In 15 Villages Promoting Organic Farming
To encourage farmers to take up organic farming and educate them on the best practices of organic farming, Bala Vikasa performed street play in 15 villages of four districts in Telangana. Creating awareness among more than 4000 farmers, Bala Vikasa’s efforts were successful in inspiring the farmers to reduce the use of pesticides.
“Street plays performed by the team were close to our local situations, I now understand the consequences of using excessive chemicals in my fields. I thought that chemical fertilizers increased my investment but never thought that it will degrade soil fertility and also will affect the health of consumers adversely. From today, I always think twice before I buy chemicals for my field. Street plays also gave us an opportunity to share of thoughts in a common platform, it is very appreciative of Bala Vikasa,” said Ramesh Raj of Narmetta village.
