In the month of March 2011, Green Beans Society involved everyone to create awareness and ownership about the Earth Hour to turn their lights off for one hour and take a stand against climate change. On Saturday March 26th, Earth Hour 2011 became the biggest Earth Hour ever with over 135 countries taking part in the event.
From the Editor’s Desk…..
Warm welcome to all the Bean members. This year we are here to share our views on Nurturing the Earth.Working on safeguarding our mother earth and transformation of polluted society into a greener, cleaner and healthier society has been the primary concern of this issue.
We had our Green Beans Orientation on 9th August, 2011 which was supported by Navdanya, which is an organisation which practises healthy organic farming. They provided us with indigenous variety of seeds of many vegetables. Students with great enthusiasm and inquisitive minds learnt new seed plantation techniques and how to make new seeds.
Green beans along with their president Deepshikha participated in City Plants Million Trees under Monsoon campaign initiated by our Honourable Chief Minister Sheila Dixit. Under this campaign we distributed free saplings and seeds to the faculties and students. These saplings were also planted in our college campus.
Anti-Tobacco campaign was also one of the major concerns on which we focused. Students actively took part in the various competitions conducted.
The students also showed their sparkling spirit in attending the workshop on Rainwater Harvesting.
We would like you to support in this noble cause of protecting the natural heritage. Let’s join hands in this effort and make earth a better to live in.
