Another Tiny Urban Forest in MCD Pochanpur School by Rise Foundation

“Children and Forest are our Future “

At a time when climate change is making heat waves more frequent and more severe, trees are stationary superheroes.

Team Rise Foundation did plantation of 8th Miyawaki Tiny Urban Forest in Dwarka.

Project loctation : SDMC Primary Pratibha School, Pochanpur, Sector 23, Dwarka

Size : 1000sq ft with 300 native plants sapling plantation

Date : 11 April 2022

In this project we tried Soil Doctor Product to check the soil quality. It took approx 20 minutes to estimate the NPK and pH values.

As per the given chart the parameters of the soil as follows:

N = 10-15Kg per /acr – Low
P = 15 Kg per /acr – Low
K= 150 Kg / acr – Low
pH = 4.5 High Acidic

The above values lead us to add more Nutrients to the site as the NPK values were quite low and other treatment to make Soil pH value towards 6- 7 (Lime is a soil amendment made from ground limestone rock, which naturally contains calcium carbonate and magnesium carbonate. When lime is added to soil, these compounds work to increase the soil’s pH, making soil less acidic and more alkaline.)

Due to hot season, we decided to have arrangement of shades to new grown saplings so that they will survive thru the summer.

We thanks to School administration, teachers and students to help us to create another Forest in the school.

Special thanks to Dr. Madhu Ghai , Ms Sharmila Verma joined us for the plantation. Gratitude to all team members including Inderjeet Singh Sir and Munish Kundra.

Rise Foundation partners with schools colleges & Institutes across Delhi NCR to plant
Miyawaki Urban forests closer to the classroom, bringing biodiversity back to
playgrounds and nature back into school curriculums.

As per Mr. Madhukar Varshney – Founder Rise Foundation ” Students observe rewilding in progress and exploration of the forest will supplement the studies of both primary and secondary pupils. The dense planting of native trees will also help to reduce pollution in the air, creating a healthier atmosphere for the entire school community.”
