The first Urban forest comes up in Dwarka Sector 7 with support from Earth Day Network as part of our Great Global Cleanup Heroes campaign, using Miyawaki Technique on 29th Aug 20. Environment enthusiasts came together to plant 180 trees using the Japanese technique in the green belt adjoining Brahma Apartments in sector 7 Dwarka. Native trees like Neem, Jamun, Amla, Peepal, Guava, Mango, Karonda, Kaner, Bamboo, Calandera etc. were planted. Using this technique, plants grow very fast and the success rate of tree survival is more than 70%. The oxygen content of the area using this method is 30% more as compared to traditional method of tree plantation.
The Project was led by Sh Madhukar Varshney and team members (Madhuri Varshney, Deepak Bhardwaj & Munish Kundra) from Rise foundation, a Great Global Cleanup participant towards our Earth Day Heroes competition.
The occasion was graced by Palam Vidhana sabha MLA Sushree Bhawna Gaur, Dr Indra Mani (Senior Scientist, IARI), Sh. Selva Rajan founder of Green Circle, Sh. Ramesh Mumukshu, Environmentalist and several other environment enthusiasts. This project is based on #communityengagement and was crowd funded. We are very much thankful to all generous donors whose contribution and blessing made this project a successful one. We also pay are gratitude to Management of #brahma #apartment #sec7 for their whole hearted support.
