Thiruvananthapuram: A lush green farm greets visitors to the sprawling campus housing the office of the Director of Public Instruction (DPI) in the city. Swaying banana palms share space with neatly planted rows of amaranthus and ladys finger.
Employees in the office are preparing for a bountiful harvest. They are proud of the farm they have created. It was in October last year that the project to develop a vegetable garden on the four-acre campus was taken up under the Clean Kerala Mission with encouragement from DPI A.P.M. Mohammed Hanish.
