The second phase of plantation drive was held on 16th September 2015 in which all the members of environment society, NSS volunteers, the staff and other employees planted 100 plants in the pots while another100 were distributed to the students to plant in their backyards or the open spaces near their houses. The plants were supplied by the Forest Department, Chandigarh Administration. The students were also given information about the different varieties of plants given to them by one of our Mali.
The plants this session have been deliberately planted in the pots as our college is in a transitory stage and the open space of the new building are not leveled because of the construction material spread in different sites as the construction of the college is under way.
The third phase of the plantation drive will be conducted in the new college building as soon as boundary walls gets constructed so that the plants are nurtured by the environment society “AVNI” by making one student own one tree and also name each tree.
