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. 

They have succeeded in creating this model, for other farmers to emulate.

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.'
