About The Event

A pilot workshop for afforestation through seed-balling

MISSION:

 To develop 10000 acres of pristine natural forest cover.

 WHY?:

 Mother nature is the survivor of entire human race. We human beings exploit her the most and do bare minimum in return. Consider this as small token of gratitude for mother nature. Forests most importantly form the lungs for the surrounding areas.

CONDUCTED BY:

Mr. Manjunath of the Vanadevathe Trust is conducting this seedball technique workshop along with Wruksha World Foundation. 

World Wruksha Foundation is a eco initiative that strives towards creating a better tomorrow for our society by working for the rejuvenation of Mother Earth.
