Family plant fruit orchard in father's memory

Solihull Editorial 10th Mar, 2023   0

A FRUIT orchard has been created in memory of a much-loved Solihull dad.

The family of Man Singh Sewak came together at Cold Land Woods in Solihull to plant 26 fruit trees to mark the number of years since he died at the age of 53 in 1996.

The ceremony was the culmination of a three-year project between the family and Solihull Council’s environmental team.

His son Punjab said: “My father was an active advocate for appreciating and conserving precious resources deriving from the earth, air and water and general environmental sustainability, an environment that gives us so much, all resources which are life preserving, without which it would be impossible for life and therefore human existence.

“My father was a true green agenda and environmental awareness champion ahead of time, he promoted green and sustainable living practices back in the 80’s and 90’s.

“Being the head of a large family, my father diligently strived to instill a sense of appreciation for the environment that gives us so much, and now three generations on in 2023 we all are too well aware of how the climate dynamic of our planet is rapidly changing in a declining direction.

“Our father was a learned person in matters relative to our environment and closely engaged with the Sikh Religion, which dates back to over five hundred years, we all joined to perform the holy pray (Ardaas) and ask for Gods (Wahe Guru Ji’s) blessing for this fruit tree orchard project.”
