The schools exhibited photos of their projects and brought some of the products to schools such as fertilizer from composting, EM liquid, EM mud ball, aquaponic plant and fish tank, urban farming products, innovative sustainable science projects, arts made from recycling materials, fruits from fertigation planting techniques, etc.
