Saturday (29 Apr 2017) was a great day. It was made even better by more than 51 volunteers & friends of Hindu Swayasevak Sangh (HSS) Mississauga chapters who came out and spend few hours of their afternoon to plant 150 trees at Camilla Park in Mississauga. Kids and adults were equally enthusiastic in performing such a ‘worship’ of mother nature – which they called ‘prithvi seva’ (meaning ‘service towards Earth’)
Thanks to City as well as Park & Forestry staff members who led the session and kicked off the event with demonstration. As part of the ‘One Million Trees Mississauga’ it was celebrations of sorts – for both – past weeks’ Earth Day as well as Canada 150!
Hindu Swayamsevak Sangh (HSS) is a voluntary, non-profit, social and cultural organization. One of the core Hindu ideals & values that inspires all volunteers is ‘vasudhaa eva kutumbakam’. It means ‘Earth is indeed (one big) family’. At many places within GTA as well as Ontario & other provinces, HSS families gather weekly and not only practice but also promote such universal ideals through fun-filled activities.
