CMS Gomti Nagar Campus II junior section students took the initiative to try organic vegetable gardening. First of all, they keenly observed and learnt various techniques to implement their project.
On 17 January 2018, students were brought old plastic tubs, the purpose of asking them to bring it was to reuse plastic tubs. Then in the guidance of the gardener students sowed the seeds of different vegetables like spinach, beetroot, coriander, mint, cabbage, Chenopodium (Bathuwa), tomato. While going back home they looked after their adopted plant and nurtured it. In this way they were able to grow organic vegetables which are fertilizer and pesticide free because as manure, the children used compost made at CMS GN-II compost pit.
The basket used for storing these vegetables was also environment friendly made out of old used towel and plaster of paris
22 March is observed as a World Water Day. The day focuses attention on the importance of universal access to clean water, sanitation and hygiene. The day also focuses on advocating for the sustainable management of freshwater resources. CMS GN-II organised a special assembly on this international day, in which a video was shown, depicting the untold facts of water. Video was a good learning for students as it unfolds the facts. In the afternoon a slogan competition was conducted among all the VI class students and day after their work was put on the junior section Soft board.
The facts of water were very beautifully written in slogan. Assembly and competition are the tools to make CMS GN II children environment friendly and motivating them to conserve water.
A tree is planted in five minutes and it gives its immense natural resources for years,in order to receive this environment natural resources plantation drive had been conducted on 6/4/2017 and 24/4/2017 in which Pre-Primary(KG) and Juniors(VI) students participated.They brought the saplings of indigenous trees of India for instance Banyan,Peepal,Lemon,Curry Leaves,Mango,Banana etc.
Just planting a saplings will not fulfill the objective of plantation,nurturing is very important,so to achieve this goal a team of ten students named as "Green ambassador" had been made who are residents of that apartment and students of GN-II and they will take care of those saplings which were planted.
A proper tagging had been done in a very environment friendly way by tying a Knot saplings with green coloured satin ribbon.
