Civic body turns waste composting yard into mini forest
Civic body turns waste composting yard near Chennai into a mini forest
Naravarikuppam Town Panchayat officials have found a 'green' solution by making the composting yard into a mini 'agro-forest'. Various fruits, flowers, and vegetables are grown in rubber tyres, shoes, washbasins and toilet seats too.
The one acre yard also has an artificial duck pond with 6 ducks in it and next to it mosquito ferns is grown, which acts as duck feed.
The agro forest was developed by using the spaces available in creative ways, turning the urban space into a green cover.
The waste composting yard has no bad odour due to the Portia trees which neutralises the odour.
The fruits and vegetables grown here are given to the sanitary workers and other staff for free.
