Indeed , this line is true because fragrance of wild flowers, budding fruit trees , rustling of the long leaves and soft touch of green vegetables make us delightful and ever activeness. This has been a guiding ‘MANTRA ‘ in our campus throughout the academic year. The school campus has more than 400 medicinal plants which help the students to understand the importance of plants and food culture. Since time immemorial , our ancestors used to prepare cook by using various plants, seeds, leaves, and roots which are healthy and tasty . Unfortunately, extreme encroachment of fast-food culture, our traditional food system has been slowly disappearing in society .
