“SAVE PLANT, SAVE EARTH”.
Jodhpur, Van Mahotsav was celebrated in a big way at Military Station Kota on 12 July 2014, under the aegis of Gandiv Division and District Forest Office, Kota. Mrs Madhu Siwach, Chairperson Gandiv Family Welfare Organisation and Mr Vikram Pradhan, the DFO, Kota led the drive by planting saplings.
Over 2000 saplings were planted by army men, their families and volunteers from forest department in local areas including Abhera and along Chambal River. One and all participated with zest, zeal and fervour including staff and children from Army Public School, Kota and Gandiv Army Pre Primary School giving the message, “SAVE PLANT, SAVE EARTH”.
Benefits of having more plant cover would not only help in preventing soil erosion but would also benefit all living things by improving air quality, bringing about improvement in weather conditions and increasing ground water level.
