A Sharjah-based organic farmer spent World Environment Day on Tuesday smashing a world record for a cause. Sudheesh Guruvayoor distributed 4,916 organic curry leaf saplings to students of Sharjah Indian School, earning him a Guinness World Record.
The previous record for ‘most saplings distributed’ was held by Dubai-based Gurunanak Darbar, where 2,083 saplings were distributed.
The curry leaves were grown in Sudheesh’s organic garden in Sharjah, and branches were cut from the main tree and placed in small cups as saplings. The students have been encouraged to grow them, and the best curry leaf plant at the end of three months will be given a prize.
