A plantation drive was organized by the Department of Biotechnology, VNSGU, Surat to mark the World Environment Day. Students from all semesters participated wholeheartedly in the event. A competition was held, where participating teams had to plant a sapling and elucidate the beneficial properties of the plant. The teams were judged on the basis of their knowledge about the plant and how to care for it.
