Donning the farmers’ caps

Merryland Holds Farmers’ Market

Buoyed up by the spirit of a rare mix of festivity and fervor, students turned up in droves, as usual, to be a vibrant part of Merryland’s much-appreciated Farmers’ Market: an of-the- pupil, by- the- pupil, for- the- pupil’ sales venture. Every now and then, a group of enterprising, business-savvy students take the initiative, in close coordination with the school’s business department, to collect and sell farm-fresh fruit and vegetables to their schoolmates. The proceeds from the sales go straight to Red Crescent, a charitable organization.

Apart from providing the students with some easy time laced with mirth from the hectic academic schedule, the event, gives them a rare opportunity to pick up some entrepreneurial skills as well.
