The foothills of Balaghat wore a lively atmosphere on the fine and cloudy morning on 1st of July, when thousands of boys and girls, NCC cadets, Teachers, Men and Women, volunteered to plant trees.  The event was organized as a part of Maharashtra State Government’s Mass Tree Plantation Programme (2cr. plantation in a day!).  The SSM and the Forest Department jointly conducted the event and 10,000 saplings were planted in 2-3 hours.

A group of women from Self Help Groups and the village took part in the plantation programme and planted hundreds of plants around the graveyard and the Mahalaxmi temple adjoining it.

The event was also attended by special invitees from Mumbai Shri Sanjay Gopal Krishnan and Ms. Chitra from E-Clark Services Ltd. They too planted trees and appreciated the interest of children in the conservation of the environment.Vruksharopan Karyakram (4)
