    I am a Middle School ( Grade 6 to 8 ) geography teacher with an International School in Mumbai. I recently took my students for a field trip to Pavna Huts and words are not enough to express my gratitude to Mr. Prasadh Yelakar. The Farm is beautiful and is Mr. Yelakar’s love and passion for the place is abundantly evident.
    Everything that I hoped for was achieved through this field trip. He spent the entire day showing the students the rice fields, sugarcane plantations and various trees for growing fruits and vegetables. It was a wonderful learning experience for the students to find about vermiculture, crop rotation, growing different kinds of flowers to keep pests away, climatic conditions needed to grow different crops, all through field work. Later the delicious farm cooked food and games organized by Mr. Yelakar was a perfect end to such a beautiful day.
    As a teacher it gives me immense satisfaction to see my students having fun while learning. They repeatedly told me that this was absolutely the best fieldtrip they had ever been for and would like to go for such fieldtrips every week.
    The one person responsible for such a reaction from the children is Mr. Prasadh Yelakar. THANK YOU VERY MUCH!
    Warm Regards,
    Nita Hassani
