Plants and Trees play a vital role in maintaining our physical and mental health by contributing to preserve the environment by providing oxygen, improving air quality, reduce carbon dioxide, climate amelioration, and conserving water. Plants and Trees also preserve soil, reduce the amount of storm water runoff, which reduces erosion and pollution in our waterways, reduce the effects of flooding and support wildlife as many species of birds and animals depend on trees for habitat. Trees also, give shelter, material for furniture and of all the benefits, give a fresh green face to the environment.
For this purpose, the students of PharmD Zero Semester initiated a “Tree Plantation Drive”, under the leadership of Dr. Noor Kamil and Dr. Ghazala Ishrat from Faculty of Pharmacy. The first phase of this drive was held on Monday Dec 3rd, 2018, when the Pharmacy faculty and students jointly planted 25 Neem Trees in the vicinity of Barrett Hodgson University. Dr. Noor Kamil inaugurated the drive by planting the first sapling. Also, nametags of students were placed on the sapling, who have contributed for this activity. We also thank the BHU admin department which were very instrumental in the successful execution of the first phase of the Plantation Drive by providing administrative support and gardening expertise.
