SVIMS V-C B.Vengamma and MCT Deputy Commissioner E. Pratap Reddy at the 'Herbal Garden' at BVB's Sri Venkateswara Vidyalaya in Tirupati.
As a part of the Club activities under Paryavaranamitra, the students of the Science Club, Bhavan's Sri Venkateswara Vidyalaya took the initiative to start a Herbal Garden and a Vermicompost Pit on the school premises. Talking on the occasion, Dr. N. Satyanarayana Raju, Hony. Director and Treasurer, Tirupati Kendra, said that the main objective of the event was to promote interest in students towards gardening and to create awareness about the medicinal values of plants available in nature. As a part of Kartheeka Vanamahotsava, the children of Class X worshipped trees like Peepal, Amla, Neem, etc., and participated with great enthusiasm.
The Herbal Garden was inaugurated by Dr. B. Vengamma, Director-cum-Vice-Chancellor, SVIMS, Tirupati and the Vermicompost pit was inaugurated by Shri E. Prathap Reddy, Deputy Commissioner, Municipal Corporation, Tirupati. In his address, the Chief Guest appreciated the students and congratulated them for taking up such an innovative project. The Herbal Garden was designed in the shape of human body. The medicinal herbs were planted in each part of the human configuration in correlation to the curing effect that they could render to that particular part. For example, Aloe Vera was planted in the head part of the human configuration as it is good for hair care. Phyllanthus niruri and Hemidesmus were planted in the stomach region to indicate their curing effects to peptic and liver problems. Some rare herbal species were planted by the guests of the day.
