50 Schools, 50 Forests

Miyawaki Method

Our mission is to create dense native Miyawaki forests across 50 sites in schools and institutions in Aurangabad (rural) to build green-lungs for the schools and villages – Harit Maharashtra Abhiyan. The uniqueness of this program comes from the democratisation of knowledge about the Miyawaki Method. We’ll train a team to oversee the implementation of these forests, as well as teams for each school to implement the Miyawaki Method effectively.

“94% of Marathwada’s land area has no green cover. This poses a serious challenge to sustainable development.Our mission is to bring everybody in Marathwada together to plant neighbourhood forests. This effort can help the planet as a whole and prevent local natural disasters like drought, floods and landslides. We must remember that the little drops of water, the little grains of sand make a mighty ocean.”

The Mission

The mission will create dense native Miyawaki forests across 50 sites in schools and institutions in Aurangabad (rural) to build green-lungs for the schools and villages – Harit Maharashtra Abhiyan.

Schools with Impact

This program also focuses on spreading awareness about the need for native species conservation to schools. The program is designed in a way to instil ownership of the forests and the impact that the school will make through nurturing it to maturity.
