The Delhi Government has asked all schools in the national capital to establish seed banks to encourage students to plant trees in public places. The Directorate of Education (DoE) has directed the schools to conduct the exercise through their eco-clubs.
“You are hereby requested to set up seed banks where students will be oriented to save every seed possible and plant and nurture them in creative, recycled pots and ultimately plant them in public places during the monsoon,” a communication sent to schools read.
