Tree plantation in Jharkhand

Chatra, Jharkhand:

Volunteers of The Art of Living Chatra organized a plantation drive at Durga Mandap Parisad at Unta More on 23rd August.

Since the beginning, trees have furnished us with two of life’s essentials, food and oxygen. They provide necessities such as shelter, medicine and tools. Today, their value continues to increase and more benefits of trees are being discovered as their role expends to satisfy the needs created by our modern lifestyle. Therefore, Upendrar Kumar Verma and Sham Kumar Verma with 100 AOL and non-AOl volunteers organized a plantation drive at Durga Mandap Parisad. They planted 251 saplings like Lakshmitaru, Pipal, Mango and Ashoka. Upendra said, “We know the importance of this event. We will monitor all the saplings periodically.”

“The Art of Living has always exhibited commitment to save the environment from further degradation. On this world environment day, the organization planted 2014 saplings at Bengaluru in their own ashram land and it is now time for us to pick our garden and sapling to reassert our continued support to save the environment.” said AOL teacher and mentor of this event Deepak Kumar.
