Beauty in wilderness - please help the lake this weekend

With our two gardeners still on leave, the weeds are growing really rampant everywhere smothering our carefully selected and planted flowering shrubs. Depending on the number of volunteers who turn up, we can begin with clearing the garden on either side of the picket gate at South City end. The weed growth is not too bad in the side we'd filled with red soil but the other half is looking quite bad with wild castor, alligator weed and parthenium among other weeds.

Another place to be cleared is the Viewing Deck. On 2nd June a large number of residents had come and planted very many shrubs. That day the child in the pic had planted a shrub which has not grown much but thanks to the rain, has already begun flowering.  The weeds around this and elsewhere in the deck need to be removed.

All lake volunteers and those of you who have not volunteered any time - please come. Our volunteer V.P. Karthik is joining the relief team at Uttarakhand along with members of "Youth for Seva". If you would like to donate money, medicine or clothes, please bring them to the lake when you come.

This weekend at Puttenahalli Lake, Saturday 20th & Sunday 21st July 2013. Time 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. Help the lake, support PNLIT!
