What an experience it was! No doubt this is one of the noblest deeds. In an era of unwanted and extreme cutting down of trees, this initiative is a great movement indeed. Initiatives of such kind do not need much monetary support, rather it requires people to volunteer and support such a cause, and this is what we eNoytians did at Chaturshrungi hill. And we feel happy to have done such a noble deed.
It started with a trek on a beautiful rainy morning at the Chaturshrungi temple. The saplings were transferred to the destination with the help of a manual chain. After a quick and valuable demo on how to correctly plant trees, we started our mission. We formed groups for conducting various activities such as diggings the pits, carrying manure, and planting the saplings. A variety of plants were planted which included neem, sacred fig (Peepal), Indian Oleander (Kanher), etc. It truly was a fulfilling experience for all.
