Raj Van

Inspired by Shri Nawal Kishore Sharma, The Then Governor of Gujarat, the Raj Bhavan Staff created a ''Raj Van'' near the Raj Bhavan Staff Quarters at Gandhinagar on 24th August, 2006 during the Van Mahotsava. All the officials and employees of the Raj Bhavan not only planted saplings each but also took pledge to rear the same besides planting one sapling every year, and thereby serve the nation by protecting both the environment and the forestry. Saplings of mango, amla, jamun, custard-apple, guava, baheda, drum-sticks, rayan, lemon, bili and anar were planted on the occasion.
