A great day at Sales!

Today was a half-yearly Parent-Teacher Meeting at Bal Bharati and a great day for sales. Besides propagating the Terramerx project, and enlisting many volunteers for future sales and schemes, we sold a good deal.

The gardening club alone made Rs. 830/- in the day and the bag production and notebook production are a hit, having brought us Rs. 450/-

The bags specially got us a lot of praise and we are working on hints and suggestions by parents.

We are all smiles 🙂

Take a look at some snaps from the sale booth!

Plants

These are the plants we put up for sale. They all have little markers in the pots, that say their names.

Sale of craft!

One of our customers took a bag and a notebook for herself, and another set for a friend 🙂

 

 

 

 

 

Craft Works- Cards!

The two running ventures, notebook production and kitchen garden, are working actively in the school. As a side venture, the Terrmerx enterprise also has a craft shop, where we put the creations of our students from waste products and biodegradable material for sale. Lately, the students designed some greeting cards from used paper. Take a look!

Card1

The first card, where the case is a printed sheet of paper.

Card2

The second card, where the flowers are made from used paper, and that only makes it prettier!

Card3

The third card, where the designing is done by used paper, and the print only adds to the effect!

Paper Sorting the Second!

Such was the paper deposition recently that we had to empty the deposit box yet again, today! Sorting the very crisp papers from the folded to some can’t-use. And here are the three volunteers who helped us today.

Stacking

The amount of paper we finally collected has managed to show need of more drop boxes at more positions! 🙂

Gardening Club

The gardening club is actively growing plants for the upcoming interactive session between parents and teachers in October. The last time, they sold 50 plants, and generated a profit of Rupees 750, much larger than we had originally expected. The herbs are blooming and we are excited!

Here’s one picture of a stall we put up before. We’re making something bigger this time!

And here’s the club at the last selling.
