In 2012, Nirbhay Kwatra, a 10-year-old student at Modern School in Delhi, decided he wanted to do something to save the planet. His vision was to garner the support of people from all walks of life to form an important “green collective” and plant trees. He also wanted to raise awareness about the use of clean and renewable energies.

As a major “first step” for his ambitious project, a “GREEN SMILING TREE WALK” was organized on January 15, 2012 in Lodhi Gardens, Delhi.

The event was a success, according to his father Mukesh Kwatrabecause people of all ages were both curious and surprised to see a child launch a campaign. Mukesh has since taken over the initiative while Nirbhay was busy with his studies.

Mukesh Kwatra

Instead of generic messages to save the planet, Smiling tree asks its members to adopt a plant, where each individual is given a simple task: to plant a tree and take care of it.

According to Mukesh, unlike usual plantings where plants and saplings are forgotten after sowing, Smiling Tree takes care of every life it plants in the true spirit of gardening.

The organization also organized an anti-plastic campaign on August 4, 2018 in bustling downtown Connaught Place, New Delhi, to raise awareness about plastic pollution.

Innovative projects

Smiling Tree has so far carried out hundreds of planting campaigns, especially in the Delhi-NCR region in places such as University of Delhi – Hansraj College, Ramjas College, Sri Ram College of Commerce, Modern School in Barakhamba Road, British School in Chanakyapuri, Mother Teresa’s Nirmal Hriday Center in Delhi, Elders Home Society in Rohini, Hari Nagar Leelawanti Saraswati School, DIET – District Institute of Education and Training – to name a few.

The company has also partnered with the government for planting campaigns in the Namami Gange program, a national Ganga river clean-up mission, with Karur Vysya Bank, Rotary Club, Maruti Suzuki’s Platinum Motocorp and many others. to carry out planting campaigns and / or donations. plants at various other locations in and around Delhi.

Smiling Tree has organized planting campaigns at community development and leadership summits organized by major schools across the country in recent years. A total of 150 students from over 25 countries like USA, UK, Germany, Australia, Canada, France, Italy, Malaysia, Mexico, Russia, Philippines , Sweden, Switzerland, South Africa, etc. participate in this green business.

“We will always strive to protect the environment as a whole. Whether it’s climate change, deforestation, the unsustainable use of natural resources, the use of plastic, gas emissions, the burning of fossil fuels or any other issue, they all constitute a great concern. We aim to make our Earth green and we will always do our best to do so, ”Mukesh said.

Celebrating cricket through the environment

Smiling Tree has created several landscaped gardens and innovative vertical gardens. One of them is the “Hall of Fame”, a tribute to Indian cricket and a mark of respect for the vintage legacy of Team India and the Roshanara Club in cricket.

“On a green landscape, it presents art installations such as three giant cricket bats, balls and stumps, tricolor stones flowing from corner to corner, gloves in the background and flowers and plants. exquisite all around. It flaunts the historic achievements of Indian cricket, as the “Men in Blue” proudly displayed the tricolor on the world stage with three World Cup victories in 1983, 2007 (T-20) and 2011, so that the three bats have the names of the respective team members as a sign of respect, ”says Mukesh.

Mukesh, an environmentalist, has also set up a terraced garden at his home, which in his words is “a humble tribute to the god of cricket”, Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar. Along with a variety of exclusive plants meticulously arranged there, it has a vertical garden where around a hundred used plastic bottles have been recycled into planters.

As Sachin had marked 100 international centuries during his illustrious career, thus, “each bottle is a memory of a century marked by him,” explains Mukesh. There is a plastic sticker on each bottle representing the points scored, the country he was playing against, the date and location he marked the Century.

There is a large lighted sign in the center with Sachin’s photos and one of his famous quotes, “Don’t stop chasing your dreams, because dreams come true”. There is another sign on the side with Sachin in full flow in the colors of India and a small description of the vertical garden.

Drive sustainability

According to Mukesh, Smiling Tree has successfully planted over three million plants and trees over the past ten years in and around Delhi-RCN.

However, motivating people to adopt trees and avoid using plastics has been a challenge. Smiling Tree was funded solely by Mukesh. Now the team, which includes seven people from family and friends, is seeking donations to expand its operations.

Mukesh says the goal of Smiling Tree is to plant trees and raise awareness of sustainable living. He also wants to educate children about environmental issues and help farmers access and learn environmentally friendly farming practices.

Another historic Lowcountry plantation is on the market.

Tombee Plantation on the island of Saint Helena in Beaufort County is listed for $ 3.5 million. The 23.96 acre property is within 20 minutes of downtown Beaufort, Fripp Island and Hunting Island.

Sitting along Tombee Creek, the land overlooks neighboring St. Philips Island which was once the private island retreat of media mogul Ted Turner, but now owned by South Carolina and available for nature tours .

The main house and guest house are surrounded by holm oaks, massive pines, palm trees and century-old magnolias. The main house was originally built in the 1790s by Thomas Benjamin “Tom B.” Chaplin and is a Georgian style construction. It was one of the first residences on the island, according to the list. It sits on a tabby foundation and has a large living and dining room, modern kitchen, three bedrooms, three bathrooms, and a spacious basement.

The guest house has a large room, kitchen, two bedrooms, three bathrooms and screened porches.

In front of the houses is a fireplace under a large living oak tree.

“This is truly a four-season property and a very manageable historic estate,” this listing states, noting the screened verandas and covered porches, among other features.

The plantation has a launching ramp in Station Creek that feeds the St Helena Strait and the Atlantic Ocean. The secluded waters also provide an opportunity to harvest oysters, crabs, plaice and rockfish.

The original plantation was 376 acres and a hub for shipping cotton from the Sea Islands to Charleston, using slave labor. One the report says that the plantation had 65 enslaved workers in 1790 and 25 in 1850. The same report noted that the federal government purchased the plantation in 1863 as part of the Port-Royal experience and the property was divided into plots, “much of the land belonging to the descendants of freed slaves until 1971”.

“St. Helena Island was the epicenter of emancipation and Tombee was among the first to do so,” the list says. “Tombee’s house was kept by the government and used as an agricultural school to educate the Freedmen. The over 750 square foot basement of the Big House was a local “juke joint” for the Gullah Geechee (community) for many years.

The residence is one of the few pre-war structures still standing in the Lowcountry today.

Nationally renowned restaurateur James Williams, whose life is documented in John Berendt’s book Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, purchased the property and began restoring the house to its “original splendor” in the 1970s. This project and its efforts to restore other historic buildings were described in Dorothy Williams Kingery’s book “More Than Mercer House: Savannah’s Jim Williams & His Southern Houses”.

Years later the house was in need of repair and the current owners, who are also acclaimed restaurateurs, have completely renovated and restored it.

They “spared no expense to modernize and revive this special place,” the list said.

A century-old plantation set on a large 1,640-acre lot along South Carolina’s scenic ACE Basin is on the market.

Poco Sabo plantation, listed at $ 16.5 million, may be appealing to a buyer who enjoys history, hunting, conservation, or all three.

The property is located in the community of Green Pond in Colleton County, approximately 30 miles from downtown Beaufort.

“Poco Sabo is a place of recreation, modern land management and nature conservation,” the list boasts. “The plantation contains a wide variety of plant and animal habitats, well-regulated historic paddy fields, pecan orchards, cultivated agricultural fields and managed forests.”

The name of the plantation comes from the native Indian tribes of the region in the late 1680s.

Best known in its early days for rice production, probably with the use of slave labor similar to other nearby plantations, the tidal rice fields are among the most important historic structures of the property. There is also a historic family cemetery and a small tabby ruin.

The current owners purchased the property in 1994 and led the restoration efforts to update the 7,500 square foot main house and ancillary buildings. Today, other buildings on the grounds include a director’s house, guest cabins, equipment sheds, stables, kennels, a greenhouse and an exercise lodge, according to the list.

Recreational options include horseback riding, fishing, hunting, bird watching, and water sports.

Poco Sabo is co-listed with Plantation Services and Crosby Landy Co. To view this property, visit crosbylandco.com Where plantationservicesinc.com. The performances are only by appointment.

Illustrating the power of storytelling, clear communication and elegant design, ‘Cuisine Gastronome’, SriLankan Catering’s gourmet heat and eat product, won three Gold Awards for its product packaging in Sri Lanka Packaging Awards 2021. Cuisine Gastronome’s packaging concept appeals to the target audience with a clear and inspired design conveying a sense of gastronomy and gastronomy, in the comfort of their home. Cuisine Gastronome won all three Gold Awards in the categories; “Food packaging”, “Innovation” and “Packaging that saves food”. As a result, Cuisine Gastronome qualified for the World Star and Asia Star awards from the World Packaging Organization.

The prestigious World Star and Asia Star awards recognize companies with innovative and creative packaging designs for their products, considering the areas of construction and material use, design, innovation technology and environmental awareness.

“As the only airline caterer to operate from BIA Katunayake, we at Sri Lankan Catering have always excelled in culinary expertise. We have served major international airlines such as Emirates, Qatar and Turkish Airlines. As an award-winning catering company, we remain firmly committed to high quality food, safety and hygiene standards. Therefore, the production of high quality consumer products was simply an extension of our existing excellence. We first launched Cuisine Gastronome during the first lockdown, when our revenue streams were rapidly dwindling due to the pandemic. But it was difficult to reach our new clientele. We knew we had to maximize customer convenience to prepare food in minutes while maintaining the nutritional integrity and flavor of our products. We are happy to have collaborated on this project with the Dentsu Grant team who guided us from the beginning to the execution phase.

The product quickly aroused the interest of consumers, and we were able to reach the world market as well. Cuisine Gastronome’s positioning – ‘It’s Fine Home Dining’ beautifully captured the essence of the brand as well as the product promise we wanted to deliver to a discerning group of consumers, ”said Mangala Wijesekara, CEO of SriLankan Catering.

“Packaging is not a piece of communication that only conveys product information. He is the brand’s spokesperson at the point of purchase, the key moment of truth. The packaging must tie together all aspects of a brand – the brand’s positioning, its values, its emotional connection, the benefits to the consumer and the product promise creating a distinct brand experience that the target audience can believe in. It has been a great pleasure working with SLC, building the next global Sri Lankan brand, ”said Sajith Weerasinghe, Director of Strategy at Dentsu Grant Group.

Sri Lankan Catering first launched Cuisine Gastronome in Sri Lanka. However, in a short time the product reached international markets, gaining popularity in Australia and the United States. The company plans to make Gourmet Cuisine available worldwide, particularly targeting markets with a large Sri Lankan diaspora.

Determined citizens in a rural area northwest of Lagos are still fighting for a rogue avocado plantation to do as ordered by government-backed authorities (click here).

Six months after the big agricultural project was given an “unfavorable” environmental impact statement – meaning it must radically change the way it “took charge” of the land – absolutely nothing has happened. changed, to the point that Regenerarte (the group created to deal with the situation) recently took legal action to urge the authorities to “do their job”.

With that done, the Algarve’s CCDR (Commission for Regional Coordination and Development) has publicly announced that Frutineves Lda – the company in charge of exploration – has now been informed that it has two months to “reposition the legality ”(ie doing as told).

But in the same “public announcement” the CCDR “informed” that Frutineves was back and said it would now take administrative action “to overturn the decision” that he must comply with the law. .

In other words, after all this time – and all the water still being drawn from precious aquifers – the “historic decision” to restore some balance seems to have made no difference.

Writing about this plantation earlier this year and how it started to operate, Espresso columnist Miguel Sousa Tavares described Frutineves as “the perfect example of how easy it is in this country. to get around the law and get out of it ”(click here).
