Shrub planting morning

We had such a wonderful time today morning with some 18 volunteers coming from across the city to plant shrubs at our Puttenahalli Lake.

Despite the distances each of them had to travel, almost all the volunteers came on the dot at 7 a.m. and stayed on to do a great job, planting nearly 200 shrubs along the coconut grove side. 

All in a row!

Special thanks to Surendran, Founder, Volunteer for a Cause (VFC) for forwarding our invitation and getting volunteers to work at our lake. We had volunteers from as far as Kodigehalli, beyond Whitefield (Deepa), Marathahalli (Karthik), BTM Layout, JP Nagar, Banasankari, etc. Thanks to our friends from BM, Mr. & Mrs. Gopal, Mrs. Seetha Nagaraj, Regunath Balasubramaniam and others. Greatly appreciate your presence and invaluable contribution.
