To take this thought towards action, a small event was planned on Sunday morning 5th June (also World Environment Day) to plant some saplings in the park as well as participatorily design the "food forest". Some questions about "what is a food forest ? ","what will be planted" and "how will these plants be maintained" etc got discussed. Here is a presentation that displays a possible Proposal that was discussed. Thanks to Himanshu for putting together the drawings
12 banana saplings + 2 mango + 1 akash mallige were planted both inside and outside the park. There were imaginations of how the schools kids who wait for the school bus near the park would have access to mangoes in a few years time. Thanks to Meera and Vidhya for arranging for the saplings.
Participants : Vidhya, Kumudha, Bharath, Amol, Smita, Rajeev, Hema, Kanthi, Meera, Himanshu and Shubha
Need to keep this momentum going
