Advisor of Horticulture, Mhathung Yanthan launched a project dubbed “Seeds of love” in the office premises of DHO Dimapur located at Green Park Dimapur on August 25. The project initiated by Entrepreneurs Guild is an outcome of the group’s social contribution during the present pandemic.

According to DIPR report, speaking as special invitee, Mhathung expressed appreciation to the Entrepreneurs Guild for coming up with a novel venture in the form of distributing seeds and saplings to the community. Observing that most of the Nagas show interest in farming, Yanthan noted that only the spark for arousing the interest of the people was missing.  

Congratulating the Entrepreneurs Guild for the wonderful venture, Yanthan remarked  that such  initiatives  supplements the efforts of the department when the lives and normal routine of the people have been thrown out of gear due to the present global pandemic. He felt that the example of Entrepreneurs Guild ought to be emulated and encouraged them to take it forward.

Seeds of Love Project director, Watila, said that the group came up with the idea of encouraging people for helping oneself by growing one’s own vegetables in one’s own backyard. “The concept is to share  seeds or saplings to friends, families and neighbours in order to promote and encourage each other for kitchen and backyard gardening towards self sufficiency and grow organically for better nutrition,” Watila maintained.

As the first phase, the group distributed saplings (tomato, brinjal, bottle gourd, houttuynia cordata) to around 100 beneficiaries across the length and breadth of Dimapur district.  The 2nd phase of the project will be distribution of seeds during winter, she informed. Further, Watila said that they will be monitoring the beneficiaries to see the success rate of their Seeds of Love project. Project was initiated by Entrepreneurs Guild in association with department of Horticulture, Nagaland and Central Institute of Horticulture, Ministry of Agriculture.
