A Vana Mahotsava was organized in some villages in Bengaluru Rural and Chickaballapura Districts on Tuesday, August 03, 2021. Dr Nadadur, Sri Bhaskar and Sri Thirumalarao from EAB, Smt Usha Shetty and her team from Gramaantara Trust and Smt Janet Yegneswaran and her team from Reforest India jointly organized this event.
In the event, 6 villages were covered. There were 30 beneficiaries and 150 saplings were planted in the fields of farmers, who had come forward to receive them. The saplings belonged to the following varieties – lemon, mango, jamun, sapota, jackfruit, butterfruit, guava, pomegranate, drumstick, and coconut. All these were distributed as requested by the farmers during a preliminary field visit and survey by the Gramaantara Trust team. The farmers have agreed to take good care of the saplings and nurture them.
EAB thanks its partners and their teams, and also its own members, office-bearers and sponsors for their support.
The next event of EAB will be another Vana Mahotsava. This time it will be in some selected villages in Mysuru and Chamarajanagar Districts. This event is scheduled to be held on Saturday, August 07, 2021. If you are interested in participating in or supporting this event, please get in touch with us.
