TREE PLANTATION DRIVE
The Tree Plantation Drive is a grassroot ecological initiative established by BVC Foundation aiming to take corrective measures to increase the green cover, restore soil health and manage natural resources appropriately. Our Mission is to increase the green cover of Mumbai in order to reverse desertification, reduce soil erosion, restore self-sufficiency, recreate sustainability and survive climate change.
Through education, Agro-forestry initiatives and most importantly, community participation, we aim to provide the necessary inspiration and support to plant trees in the shortest span of time possible.
Recently, BVC Foundation concluded the 2nd edition of its Annual Tree Plantation Drive in Mumbai at Mother Teresa's Home for the Elders, Virar, to take a step towards protecting and preserving the environment. The initiative saw participation from Team BVC and kids who supported the drive, with the novel intent of increasing the green cover of the beautiful city by planting over 500 saplings in the premises of the old age home. BVC Foundation also donated 500 fruit-bearing trees in Aarey Milk Colony in Goregaon, Mumbai for its original inhabitants. These plants were provided by Mission Green Mumbai, founded by Mr Subhajit Mukherjee, which is the largest plantation drive for a green and pollution-free Mumbai.
Speaking on the occasion, Mr Bhavik Chinai, BVC Foundation said, "Together we have pledged to make the environs beautiful again through our annual tree plantation drive. We are thankful to Mother Teresa's Home for the Elders for helping us make this initiative successful. We're delighted to have contributed to improving the environment and making a difference against global warming."
