On the pleasant Sunday morning of 5th July 2015 children gathered in the colony of Sadbhawna Apartments, Sec-22, Dwarka to get in touch with nature in its own small way. As the colony had intended to plant some more saplings in its vicinity a tree plantation drive was arranged for children – often playing in the ground on swings.
In the tree plantation drive thirty five ficus panda – member of the fig family; ten withania somnifera commonly known as “ashwagandha” – a powerful and one of the oldest medicinal plants; and sixteen hibiscus rosa or “gudhal” – used to make offerings in temples were planted by all of twelve children from the colony. Enthused by this programme, children then collected all kinds of waste lying around the plants to dispose them.
