Employees from our Chandigarh area office participated in the annual ‘Flower Plantation Drive’, held in December 2018. The activity was organised through the NGO ‘Organic Sharing’ which plans to plant 50,000 flower saplings by the end of this year in partnership with the horticulture department of Chandigarh.
The uniqueness of this event was its collaborative approach. Along with the Chandigarh team, channel partners, officers from the horticulture department, a group of school students from Bhavan Vidyalaya and NGO representatives participated in this initiative.
The drive was carried out at the scenic ‘Leisure Valley Park’, one of the many identified areas for this ‘flowering’ project. It was an enjoyable experience for the volunteers to plant saplings in the six quarries specially dug for scientific and aesthetic cultivation of colourful flowers - eventually attracting more butterflies.
