SIBM-B Organises Symbrisksha, A Tree Maintenance Drive
Bengaluru: “Each one, plant one,” says Durgesh Agrahari, program manager of Say Trees, a professionally run group with a perspective of long-term sustainable environment. Symbiosis Institute of Business Management, Bengaluru, (SIBM-B) in association with Say Trees organised a tree maintenance drive recently near Kasavanahalli lake in order to increase green cover in the city.
So far, the organisation has instilled two mini forests at the Agara lake and in Whitefield and has also helped farmers raise fruit-bearing saplings in the state of Andhra Pradesh, one of the regions in dearth of water around the country. This year they intend to successfully plant around 20,000 saplings in the state.
The enthusiastic students of SIBM-B started for the lake at 9:00 am and participated in large numbers. The volunteers, working with utmost cooperation, enjoyed passing buckets in chains, watering plants, collecting garbage surrounding the outline of the Kasavanahalli lake near Sarjapur Main Road. The Social Responsibility Committee of SIBM-B conducted the drive as a contribution towards saving the vanishing plant life and to inculcate a feeling of belongingness towards nature.
The prime motive behind the initiative was to restore the speedily degrading state of environment. The students of SIBM-B hope to pro-actively engage in more such endeavors in the coming future.
