Mini Miyawaki Forest Established in Dwarka

Today on 7th Aug 2022, due to heavy rains during the week, our Kanganheri Miyawaki Project is pending for plantation. It is decided by the team to have small mini Miyawaki forest in Dwarka Sector 12.

A small patch identified by Inderjeet Sir in the park next to Upkari Apartments, Sector 12 and he ensured the support from Upkari Apartments as well as Ashoka Apartments.

So the total 12Sq mt area is used for 35 native plants using 3 plants per sq mtr area.

A small green patch developed to attract biodiversity and will work as small air purifier. space. We used Palash, Jakranda, Bamboo, Bakain, Jamun etc for plantation.

We look forward for plantation of more saplings in the future. Thanks to all residents of Upkari Apartments , Ashoka Apartments and Team Rise Foundation Madhukar Varshney, Munish Kundra and Inderjeet Sir.

Miyawaki forests grow in two to three years and are self-sustaining. They help lower temperatures in concrete heat islands, reduce air and noise pollution, attract local birds and insects, and create carbon sinks.

Note : Miyawaki is a technique pioneered by Japanese botanist Late Mr. Akira Miyawaki, that helps build dense, native forests. The approach is supposed to ensure that plant growth is 10 times faster and the resulting plantation is 30 times denser than usual. It involves planting dozens of native species in the same area, and becomes maintenance-free after the first three years.
