Organic Garden

The ultimate aim of the organic garden is to conserve the environment and natural resources, re-establishing ecological balance, encouraging sustainable agriculture, improving soil fertility, conserving flora and fauna, increasing genetic diversity, and putting an end to chemical pollution and toxic residues. Our Esteemed Director, Dr. Susan Marthandan has come up with an idea of “ORGANIC GARDEN” in our campus. Hence the Hindustan College of Arts & Science decided to form an eco-friendly environment. In this regard, Organic Garden has been effectively established in the year 2014. The Department of Microbiology is maintaining the Organic Garden, through which we are harvesting the vegetables free from chemical fertilizers and pesticides. The Vermicompost is used as a biofertilizer in the Organic garden; due to this the harvested vegetables are highly rich in nutritive elements such as Proteins, Vitamins, and Minerals etc.
