  • Amma’s 70th Birthday – 70 Years of Torrential Grace – Sevana Varam (Selfless Service) Celebration from September 23rd – 27th

  • Under the Sevana Varam initiative to promote environmental awareness and engage in hands-on conservation, the students and staff of Amrita Vidyalayam  recently organized a Seed Ball Activity at Gyanda Girls High School, Ghatlodia. This initiative aimed to instill a sense of responsibility towards the environment among the students while contributing to the enhancement of the local ecosystem.

    The students and staff, fuelled by a shared passion for nature, were divided into groups, each armed with clay, soil, compost, and a variety of native seeds. The students enthusiastically embraced the task of creating seed balls, a process that involved mixing the seeds with clay and compost to form small, round balls. These seed balls act as mini ecosystems, providing seeds with protection and nutrients as they begin to germinate and grow.

    The girls’ school courtyard was soon transformed into a bustling workshop, as students and staff worked together to craft hundreds of seed balls. This activity not only fostered a sense of camaraderie but also allowed the students to appreciate the power of collective action in the pursuit of a greener and more sustainable future.

    The Seed Ball Activity at the girls’ school in Ghatlodia served as a testament to the power of education, collaboration, and collective action in the fight against environmental degradation. It not only inspired the students to become responsible stewards of the environment but also showcased how simple initiatives can make a significant impact. As the seed balls take root and grow, they will serve as a living testament to the dedication and passion of Amrita Vidyalayam in their mission to create a greener and more sustainable future for all.
