Chandigarh : As part of the ongoing celebrations for Poshan Maah, Government Home Science College took the initiative to plant useful kitchen herbs in the herbal garden on the college campus.
Ajwain, turmeric, lemon, garlic, lemon grass, basil and cardamom were some of the herbs that were planted. All these herbs find an important place in our diet due to their medicinal and therapeutic properties. Earlier in the month, a demonstration was also conducted on how these herbs could be incorporated in the daily diet.
Principal Prof Sudha Katyal encouraged all the staff and students to plant herbs in their kitchen gardens and use them in our diets to help build immunity and prevent against onset of diseases.
