PATNA: Over 20 students from various schools got tips on organic farming, composting, vertical gardening and other eco-friendly activities at a gardening workshop held at Tarumitra Ashram here on Sunday.

Tarumitra convenor Devopriya Dutta said children from different schools, such as Don Bosco Academy, Open Minds Birla School, Notre Dame Academy, Delhi Public School, Kidzee Preschool and S V M Public School participated in the workshop.

Father Robert Athickal, one of the founder members of Tarumitra, said children should be taught customs and traditions at an early age for holistic development. “Children have contributed a lot in turning Tarumitra campus green. Today, we have more than 400 varieties of plants in our compound,” he added.

Children in the age group of four to 13 years learned the importance of keeping their surroundings clean and green at the workshop.

Anu Arora, who conducted the workshop, said Patna is one of the most polluted cities in the country. “Alarming pollution level in the city is a matter of great concern. When kids step out of their homes to go school, they are exposed to all kinds of pollutants. Such workshops will go a long way in motivating the children to conserve environment,” Arora added.

Ryan Batra, a Class III student of Delhi Public School, said, “These days, we hardly hear the sound of chirping of birds. We should all join hands to make the city green.”

Other students who took part in the workshop included Aneesh Anurag, Girish Mankani, Eklavya Gupta, Myra Batra, Anihska Tiwari, Nyra Chhabra, Lavishka Malhotra, Aarna Malhotra, Saundarya Gupta, Aakash Raj, Shereesh Bhaskar, Rajeev Gupta, Nityam Narayan Thakur, Harsh Bhartiya, Prince Kumar, Om Ashish, Shivam Raj, Sunny Kumar, Pankaj Kumar and Sachin Sahu.
