Itoozhi Ayurveda has always been an active proponent of the conservation and propagation of our indigenous plant gene pool, for future generations. It may be recalled that the Itoozhi Foundation’s herbal park established at Kannur in collaboration with the state’s district administration in September 2012, is grown exponentially in terms of the number of medicinal herbs that could be used in service of Ayurveda.
The Haritha Nidhi Project at Kannur, an initiative of the District Institute of Educational and Training (DIET) aims at activities that could be taken by the staff and students of each school under its purview to make the specific school environs green.
The program at Cheleri AUP School was launched by Dr I Unnikrishnan Namboothiri who also led an informative and interactive session with the students on the topic, “Children and the environment.”
Saplings and seeds for creating the vegetable nurseries in the school premises were given away by K Ravindran, Headmaster, AUP School Cheleri. The student community of AUP School Cheleri have been at the forefront of eco-conservation, employing innovative and cost-effective methods in the conservation of local eco-systems, and we were amazed at the level of knowledge and enthusiasm among the young minds who were committed in keeping their part of the world greener for the coming generation.
The Haritha Nidhi Project implemented at AUP School, Cheleri comes in continuation of the Shuchithva Veedhi initiative in the school district for which the AUP School Cheleri had emerged toppers. It gives us immense pleasure to be a part of local community projects as these, that raises our benchmarks in commitment to conserving Nature.
