New initiatives at Puttenahalli Lake

It is not only the number of birds in our lake that is growing but also our team, slowly but steadily! We are happy to induct two teams of volunteers PNLIT Mitra and PNLIT Young Rangers.

As of now we have three supporters in the Mitra (Friends) category and four Young Rangers who make up for their lack in years with youthful enthusiasm. To those of you who had suggested names for the PNLIT juniors – "PNLIT Young Rangers" was the name that the child members chose for themselves. With these new volunteers to assist us, we shall soon be launching several environment/ lake related activities.

Continuing with our effort of giving an opportunity to all to strengthen their bond with nature, we are happy to announce Community Gardening at Puttenahalli Lake. The concept is simple and grows from the weekend gardening scheme in which several residents from South City and Brigade Millennium had participated in last year.

This is an invitation to garden enthusiasts of all ages to come together and collectively work to grow plants organically thus increasing the green space around us. Each group will be given a small plot of land on the lake bund in which to grow plants using organic manure.

Ms. Jyothi Nagaraj, a keen gardener who lives in RBI Layout will lead this community project. Read about Jyothi on this link… http://bangalore.citizenmatters.in/articles/view/3956-community-gardening-in-jp-nagar.

If you would like to join please email asap . We are planning to begin on Sat. 7th Apr 2012.
