For the third consecutive year, RC Dalmiapuram, RID 3000, has organised ‘Seed Balls Festival’ in association with Dalmia Cement. The aim was to usher in a green environment in the town in Triuchy district of Tamil Nadu and its surrounding villages.
Students from Dalmia Higher Secondary School, Dalmia Vidya Mandir and Sri Ramakrishna Dalmia Industrial Training Institute came together to make around 20,000 seed balls. Around 16 varieties of seeds including neem, pungan, banyan and bamboo were used for making seed balls.
DG Zameer Pasha was accom- panied by Bhuvan Unhelkar from RC Sarasota Sunrise, RID 6960, Florida, USA. Besides Rotarians and district leaders, members from Dalmia Ladies Club and employees of Dalmia Cement and Dalmia Refractories were present to encourage the students. “The seed ball festival is one way of expressing our social responsibility to the environment and also helped to promote Rotary to the younger generation,” said A Maria Selva Rex, Secretary, RC Dalmiapuram.
