Self-reliance is one of the four founding principles of the Gurukul. Agriculture and Dairy help the Gurukul to become self-reliant. The agricultural activities are implemented in 6-7 acres of land and its characteristics are as follows:

  • Crops grown by organic farming.
  • 50 quintals of Vermicomposting is produced.This is used as manure and the excess is sold.
  • Horticulture comprising more than 200 fruit-bearing trees has been developed. These fruits are used in the Gurukul itself.
  • Vegetables are grown in the farms and are used to cook for 200 people daily.
  • Agriculture supports the Gurukul to become economically self-reliant.
  • Students are exposed to farming from which they learn a lot.
  • Food for the cattle is harvested from these fields.
  • The fuel required for cooking and hot water is also from these farms.
