Vruksh Kosh (Tree bank)
Have you ever wondered what to do with the plants which suddenly sprout in your balconies, backyards or wall crevices and start growing quietly? These saplings come from seeds which get deposited by birds, bats or through wind. These plants rarely get to grow into trees.
On the other side there are large areas which have been degraded and can be ecologically restored with forestry.
Let’s bridge this gap!
We are setting up “Vruskh Kosh” or Tree Bank for indigenous trees (native trees) where you can donate saplings and we will ensure that they grow into trees!
Your trees will become part of habitat restoration of village lands or community forestry projects only .
With your account in tree bank , you can volunteer with us for habitat restoration projects, or during Spring and Summer season, you can participate in our seed collection drives.
This is an invite to each of you to be part of a Vision ! A vision where we restore degraded lands, create forests, bring back biodiversity, restore ecology, address depleting water tables in very large areas and on a very large scale !
It’s an invite for an investment towards collective greener future!
If you would like to contribute saplings to Vruksh Kosh, follow these easy steps-
