“Know Your Plants” – Project Kaanana Event Report

The monthly Forest Under Construction under the hood of Project Kaanana with the theme “Know Your Plants” was successfully carried out on 27th July 2013 at Ramakrishna Mission Shivanahalli campus. Around 60 participants turned out, of which, many belonged to young generation – the future hope of conservation!

The event commenced with breakfast followed by a quick introduction to the history of the place, it’s work so far and it’s objectives and mission in the future.


Inspired by the previous Eco event Mr. Vallish a manager at Bosch invited this Bosch team of engineers. 29th June a group of 30 Engineers from Bosch arrived RK Mission at 9am.


A week long volunteering from LSI had their impact in all fields including Education, Environment etc. where they volunteered and distributed School Kits in collaboration with Youth for Seva. As part of their Conservation efforts they had a sapling plantation drive at the Mission campus where they had their hands soiled and toiled to plant and sponsor for around 100 Saplings. This is unique in terms of increasing the buffer of Bannerghata National Park, Planting all Western Ghat species and preserving native and endemic species rather than exotic species as in Bangalore.
