Siruthuli stimulates Palm cultivation

Siruthuli embarked on a journey to create “Shanthi Panai Vanam” and “Panaiyagam” at Lakshmipuram Pachapalayam, at the Perur Chettipalayam Panchayat, to generate awareness and to propagate the virtues of the palmyra tree

On a 1.7-acre land, 185 palm trees were planted in half the area, surrounded by a beautifully paved walkway. In the remaining one acre, 2000 saplings were planted using Miyawaki style during the inaugural event.

The Shanthi Panai Vanam’s Resource centre and Conference hall “Panaiyagam” has been set up to highlight the merits of Panai and Panai products and the importance of Panai cultivation. The Centre houses an exhibit on the details of Panai, uses of Panai, ways to cultivate and grow Panai and information on products based out of Panai.

Dr B K. Krishnaraj Vanavarayar inaugurated the “Panaiyagam” by lighting the lamp accompanied by Vanitha Mohan, Managing Trustee of Siruthuli. Prasad on behalf of the people of Perur Chettipalayam and A V Varadarajan on behalf of the Industry and Trade Organizations participated and offered felicitations during the event. Panchayat stakeholders, farmers, student volunteers and members of Siruthuli took part in this function.
