The Eco Club Samrakshan of Jain College, JC Road had organized an event “Sapling Handout” on 20 July 2018. The chief guests were Dr. A.N. Yellappa Reddy, a renowned environmentalist and IFS officer, Smt Dipika Bajpai, DCF, Bengaluru, who helped to float the idea of distributing 3000 saplings of Silver Oak, Jamun, Neem, Cassia fistula, Singapore cherry, Amla, Simaruba along with non-toxic saplings of turmeric and ginger at a very reasonable price to our students, staff and the public too.
Faculty Members and students from the JC road campus were the enthusiastic people who supported the event for a virtual cause by purchasing all the 3000 saplings which we procured from the Department of Forests. The event was supported by the Department of Kannada and Culture, Government of Karnataka with a special folk dance – the Yakshagana performance with a theme enhancing our event. Their performance added colors and vibrancy to the whole activity.
