Team of Chennai Corporation’s ward 119 grows rooftop garden

Recently, the staff at Chennai Corporation’s ward 119 unit at CIT colony, Mylapore has started growing a rooftop garden.

Plants, including tomato, beans, pumpkin and more are grown here.

Guhan, AE of ward 119 says, “Since a long time, our higher officials have been asking us to grow plants wherever possible. As we have space on our terrace, we decided to start a garden.”

To protect the plants from severe heat, and heavy rain or wind, the garden has been covered with a thick and translucent green coloured cloth.

“Our workers are enthusiastically taking care of the plants. The veggies will be given to them,” says Guhan.
