A similar programme was organized on September 20 to clear the area next to a well at Batwar. Photos below.
Our team encourages organic farming as part of our strategy to reduce the impact of chemical fertilizers on fields adjoining prime wildlife areas. Part of our work includes assistance to villagers in setting up vermi-compost tanks and compost pits. During September, we helped 4 villagers dig compost pits – Kashiram of Samaiya on September 17, Chetu Lal Uikey of Kutwahi on September 19, Arjun Markam of Sautiya on September 24, and Drup Singh of Batwar on September 29.
On September 8, our team organized an anti-plastic programme at Patpara. Amit and Sampath spoke to the villagers about the harmful impact of plastic/polythene on the environment and motivated them to remove such litter from the village. The team of villagers and students went around the village, collecting plastic and polythene litter/waste, which were then buried in a pit on the outskirts of the village. A similar anti-plastic programme was organized at Dhamangaon on September 23.
