With SUGi, the Green Aurangabad Mission (GAM) will  create a Miyawaki dense forest in the Govt. ITI College, Osmanpura, Aurangabad.

The forest will be spread out on an area of 8,000 sq ft and act as green-lung for the region. It will help in promoting the local biodiversity by planting native species of flora which would also harbor the native fauna. Student engagement is also an important aspect of this project as workshops will be conducted to train them on soil amendment and the Miyawaki method of plantation. The maintenance and monitoring of the forest will also be done by the students and college staff.

“This forest air filter and carbon sink is critical in the backdrop of the imminent risk of global climate change, ever reducing green cover, dwindling biodiversity, worsening water scarcity and impending socio-economic crises due to frequently occurring natural disasters, especially floods, droughts and landslides.”

Praveen Srivastava, CCF & Dy. DG of Social Forestry dept (Marathwada region)

The tallest tree recorded in the forest was a Drumstick tree (Moringa oleifera) at 300cm, but in October 2021 a thunderstorm sadly brought this down. Still, the average height of the forest is 150cm to 182cm.
