This is quite an old story… nevertheless, worth writing about…
GKVK: Gandhi Krishi Vignana Kendra a.k.a. University of Agricultural Sciences(UAS)
My cousin who was studying there at that time had informed us about the “Agri-Mela” happening in her campus sometime in November. I was back early from college that day.. And so, dad and I went for a ride with an idea of getting some fresh air and some agri-info..
The whole campus is lit with bright colours – with various fruits and flowers which are in full bloom in the month of November. We had lots and lots of gyan on agriculture, horticulture, farming, etc..
Once we finished checking out the stalls put up there, we thought of just walking around the 1000 odd acres of farm… This is an excellent place for bird watching too..
The number of plants on the cultivation list goes on and on.. So, I prefer to keep it short:
All in all- An afternoon well spent J
One can go here for a drive if one wants some fresh air without going too far from the city on a lazy evening…This is on the way to Yelahanka from Hebbal- just before Jakkur aerodrome.
