Programmes

The organic farming is part of our horticulture programme. The horticulture therapy is applied for our trainees who may face some learning disorders. The environment is designed to provide a very conducive learning. Different types of organic vegetables are grown for sale. With the help and guidance of EMRO staff, we learn to grow organic vegetables without the use of chemical fertilisers. Customers these days prefer to eat organic vegetables and we are getting more popular in the sale of home-grown products.
