‘Plant for love’ today

The Environment Ministry will launch a tree planting programme, “A Plant for Love” today at the Weerawila Lake to mark the Valentine's Day, which falls on February 14.

It will be launched in parallel to the Husma Dena Thuru planting programme.

Under the programme, 5000 Mee saplings will be planted on the banks of the lake.

The couples will plant the saplings and hand them over to the elderly farmers in the area.

Environment Minister Mahinda Amaraweera said that the decision was made to set up the programme to encourage the present generation to protect the environment.
