    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.
