Team MyTree Delhi-NCR announces the launch of The MyTree Project – Group Initiative. I Am Gurgaon, NGO and Municipal Corporation of Gurgaon have been instrumental in helping mobilize this project, helping obtain a dedicated area to plant 1000 trees to create the MyTree Forest at Aravalli Biodiversity Park.
PROJECT : MyTree Forest @ Aravalli Biodiversity Park, Delhi NCR
DATE : 3 September 2016, Saturday
TIME : 7.00 am – 9.00 am
The MyTree initiative seeks to fulfill Manav Ekta Mission’s aim of promoting sustainable living by encouraging planting of trees. MyTree is inspired by the Sanskrit word – Maitri – meaning amity. This MyTree initiative promotes Maitri by encouraging an individual/community-led partnership to plant trees—a human alliance that ensures a sustainable relationship with nature.
The Aravalli Biodiversity Park is located on the South Central Ridge in the spurs of the Aravallis in the National Capital Territory of Delhi and spreads over an area of 692 acres. The landscape is undulating with gentle slopes and dotted with numerous morrum and clay mined pits of different sizes, depths and shapes. The Ridge is said to be the green lungs for the city and protects Delhi from the hot winds of the deserts of Rajasthan to the west. The land, on which Aravali Biodiversity Park is being developed, was devoid of natural growth of forest due to extensive mining of the area.
You are warmly invited to participate in this tree planting initiative on 3 September 2016, with your friends and family, including children. You may also share this message with your friends & colleagues and invite them to join this movement.
