‘Fruit For All’ Drive Enters Peshawar

‘Fruits for all’ drive is now coming to Peshawar under which the local government plants fruit trees in public places.

As part of the drive, councilors of the city district government will be planting fruit trees in public places so that poor people can enjoy free food.

This is an initiative of the K-P government and has gained popularity in other areas as well.

Peshawar’s City District Nazim, Mohammad Asim Khan, has assigned Agriculture Department officer Khalid Usman the task to mobilize district council members for promoting the drive.

The officers of the Agriculture Department will test the soil of the concerned districts and would suggest which plants would be suitable for the land.

Members of the district council will provide the district Nazim with recommendations for a Fruit for All Farm. The farms will then provide fruit-bearing plants to concerned union councils.

  • “Hats Off” to the District Nazim and the Agriculture Officers in Peshawar for their efforts… may Allah Tallah bestow upon you all the success with wisdom to complete this drive and become a guide line for rest of this blessed Great Nation. Amin.

    Motorways and all highways is a tremendous potential terrain where the Government is starting to plant 10 billion trees. If these could be ingrained with terrain, climate friendly fruit trees as one can see all across the road side Persimmon Fruit trees (Japani Phal) when entering Sawat and jointly worked upon with what the Peshawar District good Nazim has directed in Peshawar, it can be a tremendous gift to the nation future generations as well as towards the green Pakistan.

    I sincerely wish it is supported end to end by the Government. And I Feel blessed after reading this.
