Happy New Year - 2024!

Hello friends Happy New Year 2024!! 

It's another New Year but we at ECO-V will be continuing the same activities from last years. 

Well.... writing a blog has become a lazy activity for me now. I think its due to other social media like face book, Instagram and WhatsApp.  They are more popular and I always write short articles and post it soon after one especial thing happens. But our blog is part of our newsletter, hence we thought of maintaining it continuously for our Newsletter readers. 

I am sure you all know that I have been living in New Delhi for past 7 years and our ECO-V office is still functioning in Colombo. We have an energetic project coordinator back in Sri Lanka who looks after ECO-V activities. She is our dear Pasini Alwis and she is the one who reminded me to start a newsletter. Then I said may be we can keep our blog live so anyone can read it.

Pasini and Kanchana designing a Metta Garden

ECO-V was always active even during Covid-19 time as we had our Metta Garden and we have been helping urban biodiversity very much when people had shut down themselves inside the homes. 

Pasini joined us in 2021, first as a volunteer after finishing her bachelors degree in Agriculture. She started looking after our Metta Garden in Boralesagamuwa and then we started making other Metta Gardens around Colombo. So it's Pasini mainly who looks after our five Metta Gardens and I will be writing more about them soon. Today as first blog post for year 2024, I thought that we can show you some photos about these Metta Gardens we have in Sri Lanka. 

If you would like to read more about the Metta Garden Concept here are some links for online articles. Thank you for reading and see you soon!
