Empowering Students for a Greener Future: ICS Host Herbal Planting Event

The Indian Cultural Society (ICS) at IUMW recently organised an enriching Herbal Planting Event. This event highlighted the benefits of herbal plants and aimed to foster environmental awareness and sustainable practices among students.

Cultivating Wisdom, Growing Herbs

The event, a brainchild of ICS, embodies the society’s dedication to promoting environmental consciousness, traditional knowledge, and sustainable habits. Through hands-on experiences and knowledge sharing, the event provided students with insights into herbs and their multifaceted significance.

A Greener Perspective

Guided by three primary objectives, the event focused on:

  • Ecosystem Awareness: Students engaged with herbal plants to deepen their understanding of the delicate balance between humans and nature, emphasising the need for ecosystem preservation.
  • Herb Identification and Cultivation: Practical workshops educated students on distinguishing herbs and nurturing them within garden settings.
  • Herb Integration: The event encouraged students to seamlessly incorporate herbs into daily life, from culinary enhancements to holistic remedies.

Nature’s Treasures Showcased

The event featured prominent herbal plants, including Neem, Curry Leaves, Holy Basil, and Mexican Mint, each celebrated for distinct attributes and cultural significance.
