Kottayam: Thalayolaparambu natives were surprised when a group of students reached their home with farm tools and vegetable seeds. But when they told the natives about their mission, everyone welcomed them with a warm smile on their face.
The students of Vaikkom Muhammad Basheer Memorial Govt. Vocational Higher Secondary in Thalayolaparambu launched a mission titled ‘Kitchen garden for Mother’ to cultivate organic vegetables in the area.
The students reached the houses near their school to set up vegetable garden as part of this project under National Service Scheme.
They have set up vegetable garden in 100 houses under the project. Volunteers of National Service Scheme were on the mission to set up kitchen garden in their neighbourhood.
They have also launched a set of projects including awareness programmes to save energy titled ‘Harithabhavanam’ and an anti-drug campaign.
LED bulbs were distributed to the natives as part of the save energy campaign.
They have staged a street play titled ‘Amma Ariyan’ to promote the message on drug abuse among students.
Grama panchayat vice president Thulasi Madhusoodanan inaugurated the official launch of the projects.
