World Water Day - Let's clean our lake!

With our trees sprouting new leaves or bursting into flower, each day is a celebration of our lake. The World Water Day (March 22nd) is but an excuse for us to get together and do our bit for Water. Post Ugadi, please join us on Sat. 28th March to clean the dry parts of the lake bed. Help us remove the plastic, pull out weeds and plant bamboo perches for the birds. For just a couple of hours of work on one day in a year, get the satisfaction of preparing your lake for the monsoon. 

We are delighted to have the Karnataka State Pollution Control Board as our partner in this lake clearing drive.

Time: 7 a.m. to 9 a.m.
Venue: Puttenahalli Lake, near MLR Convention Hall

Tender new leaves

Pink Cassia flower bud sprays

Good site for planting bird perch

To ensure that we have enough garden equipment for all volunteers, please confirm your participation with a reply to this mail.  Children below 15 years can work with you on the bund, de-weeding, mulching, etc. There will be plenty of work for all!   

With Ugadi greetings.
