At a time when urban kids struggle with even eating healthy, a class 12 student of National Public School in Bengaluru’s Indiranagar runs his own organic farm and has inspired thousands of urban residents through his YouTube channel.Arya Pudota, who is going to turn 17 in July, started his journey six years ago when he was just 10 and saw his mother farming on a plot of land next to their house. Arya started with little things like watering the plants or cleaning the weeds and slowly grew interested in full-fledged farming.Within a few years, Arya took up the lead role to look after the farm and became an expert in farming.
Arya started growing almost all seasonal vegetables on this 4,000 sqft. land, gaining the attraction of his neighbours.People loved the organic veggies and few would also try to help Arya at his farm. However, Arya sensed the disconnect urban people had with farming.
He started a YouTube channel called ‘My Organic Farm’ and posted step-by-step videos on organic farming and waste management for beginners
The channel was very successful in its outreach, garnering more than 2,000 subscribers, 100,000 views from across 170 countries. Arya responds to viewers’ questions by practically showcasing answers through more videos. His tutorial videos cover everything — right from selecting soil to preparing a bed for mushrooms in limited spaces like a small balcony.
