THE ROSES AT AQUILA FARM

Aquila is taking up initiative in conserving rain water by channeling the water from Greenhouse roof to a main reservoir which would be used for irrigation.
Further water harvesting is also being implemented by channeling the rainwater in the farm to a large reservoir.
We also conduct tree-planting initiatives as our on-going responsibility of replenishing the land and helping keep our country green and beautiful.
