Adopt a Fruit Tree
Faridabad Navchetna Trust is perpetuating its Green Mission by conducting ‘The First Anniversary of The Largest Plantation’ drive in Faridabad under the chairmanship and able guidance of of Sh. Vipul Goel, MLA Faridabad. The drive is based on ‘Adopt a Fruit Tree’mission. It may be recalled that Faridabad Navchetna Trust had in the past hoisted the Tallest Tiranga and later organised one of ‘The Largest Plantation’ drives in India on July 25, 2015, in which citizens of Faridabad planted two lakh saplings in three hours in a single day – registering Faridabad in the Limca Book of Records! The present Initiative which is being held from July 23 to July 24, 2016, will witness Faridabad Navchetna Trust celebrating the First Anniversary of The Largest Plantation by encouraging citizens of Faridabad to ‘Adopt a Fruit Tree’—from among a variety of fruit saplings of Mango, Guava, Jackfruit, Lemon, Mulberry (Shehtoot), Jamun, Fig (Anjeer), Amla (Indian Gooseberry) and Chiku—in its efforts to make Faridabad healthy, beauty and pollution-free.
Under this initiative, citizens of Faridabad can collect their fruit plant on July 23 (from 10am to 6pm) or July 24 (from 8am to 4pm), 2016, from Sector 12, Faridabad (Opposite Town Park) and plant a fruit sapling on July 25 following which they can click a selfie and post it on the Faridabad Navchetna Facebook page at www.facebook.com/faridabadnavchetnatrust/ in which they would have to write #AdoptAFRuitTree.
The campaign which would be inaugurated by Sh. Vipul Goel, MLA Faridabad, has already created quite an impact among Schools, Colleges and Corporates across Faridabad. Speaking about the campaign, Sh. Vipul Goel, MLA Faridabad, stated that those receiving fruit plants from the Collection Centre near Town Park in Sector 12, Faridabad would be filling up a form and undertaking a pledge promising to nurture the fruit plant forever like their child and taking care of it like one’s parents to make the environment of Faridabad more healthy and beautiful for generations to come. The fruit plants would no doubt help towards sustaining the flora and fauna and be a valuable nutrition source. The ‘green gift’ that they receive can be planted at a place of their liking—in schools, offices, green belts or any patch of their choice.
Calling all citizens to participate in the ‘First Anniversary of The Largest Plantation’ drive, Sh. Vipul Goel stated: “Faridabad’s green initiative is for everyone with the united mission of making it clean, green and pollution-free. Let us all join hands and adopt a fruit plant. We would reap its rich harvests and benefits for years on end.”
