The Sikh Environment Day 2013 (Sikh Vatavaran Diwas) proved a massive celebration with high enthusiasm and valuable participation from the Sikh community worldwide. More than 1500 Sikh Gurdwaras, organizations, academic institutions and members of the Sikh community at large celebrated this meaningful day. March 14th, an important day in Sikh history, commemorates the Gurgaddi Diwas (Enthronement Day) of our Seventh Guru, Guru Har Rai Saheb. To celebrate his legacy for love of nature and its biodiversity, Sikh Environment Day began as a grassroots movement three years ago. And with each year’s growing success, the impact on an individual as well as on a global level has been tremendous. Like previous year’s efforts, this year also trees were planted by young and adults alike, new vegetable and fruit gardens were installed for organic kitchen gardening, and seminars and workshops were organized to engage the community in a thoughtful dialogue for the future of a sustainable Mother Earth! EcoSikh team has compiled an extensive report on this year’s Sikh Environment Day celebrations.
