The Agri-Horticultural Society, Public Gardens, has come up with a plan to open its green arena for the public with several new initiatives to propagate gardening methods and techniques bringing experts, environmental enthusiasts, and plant-lovers together at one place. From rebuilding the infrastructure to decorating with different species of fruits, flowers, and ornamental saplings, the society, led by chairman Anil Kumar Venkat Epur, is all set to give a complete facelift to its arena. To realize the dream, it has decided to utilize the services of its members having expertise in gardening.
T Narasimha Das, vice-chairman, informed that "we plan to rejuvenate the society with all types of saplings of fruit, flowers, and ornamental varieties, besides medicinal plants. Also, we are rolling out some changes in the amphitheater to provide agri-experts and plant enthusiasts a proper platform where one can disseminate ideas about garden raising while the other can emulate it in their houses, thereby ushering in a green revolution in the city. For this, we would utilize services of members having excelled in raising gardens while serving for a long period."
About the plans, he said, the society was renovating the obsolete structures to give them a soothing and refreshing look. "We planned to meet the quality plant material demand of fruit growers interested in home and terrace gardening. Training to raise poly house vegetables and flower cultivation are the features of our services." He said, "The society would conduct training programs in compact batches throughout the year. We also have expert hands on terrace gardening, organic farming, Bonsai gardening, vegetative propagation, pruning techniques, and beekeeping. We extend training programs for malis and garden supervisors, besides extending crop-specific technical services under the ambit of society."
