Kolkata: Nature View, Medicinal Garden for Lake Cards | Kolkata News – Indian Times

Kolkata: More than 192 hectares have been expanded to include more than 192 hectares, including a body of water. The Kolkata Metropolitan Development Authority (KMDA), which is the custodian of Rabindra Sarobar, will soon sign a memorandum of understanding with the State Department of Vegetation for better management, control and conservation of new green zones.
In order to make Rabindra Sarobar more attractive to students and nature lovers, a committee set up by the Department of Horticulture and Forestry has been appointed by KMA to conduct research on how to develop green zones with certain tree species. The idea is to make eco-tourism accessible to eco-parks or plantations without protecting the natural ecosystem, officials said.

“The plan is to divide the yard into different green zones. For example, there may be a “trifala” zone where seedlings of worship, haritaki and boira are planted; In those categories, there may be “Pancha Palab” and “Pancha Bati” zones where trees fall. The scientific names of the trees are also preserved. There will also be a garden with medicinal trees, ”said a KMDA official.
There are also plans to have a natural observation zone with a variety of animals and a butterfly garden. He said the expert committee is making recommendations.
Since MMD is basically an engineering wing, “the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Department of Fruit and Vegetation Development will sign off on better control of various green zones. Gardeners can properly control and care for a wide variety of trees. Soil tests will be carried out to determine what kind of seedlings will be planted in some areas, ”said one official.
Today, there are about 7,000 trees in the Rabindra Sarobar, belonging to 70-75 different species. Many trees were uprooted during the amphitheater last year, but many were replanted.
