AURANGABAD, OCT 28, 2015: The green initiatives of the Salesians in Bosco Gramin Vikas Kendra (BGVK) Waluj, Aurangabad are flourishing.
The method of drip irrigation- to combat the problem of water scarcity- has enabled the cultivation of drum sticks and papayas, to a height of five feet.
Horticulture is another successful practise, where papayas, drumsticks and intercrops like methi, palak, coriander and chillies are being cultivated on the BGVK- Waluj campus; using the drip irrigation method.
Goatry and poultry farming is also is being undertaken at the back compound, as a demonstration for farmers, in a hope that they will follow suit.
With these initiatives, the Salesians at BGVK- Waluj are hoping to build a 'Green Economy.'
