Reply to previous post: "tree plantation"

Ravishankar's post raised a very important question regarding where the members meet. And what is currently on the agenda. Although we have done a lot of activities in the past few months, all were done separately as individual activities. Naveen planted more than 50 trees at Gokulam. We at Sapgreen with the help of various Eco-conscious people planted more than 450 trees since April and ensured that all are standing well. Everyone here has contributed in one way or the other in greenifying the city. Sometimes, motivation from members itself has been a great catalyst. However, I think we need some more coordination and planning to make an even larger impact.

Recently, I noticed deforestation at a few lakes around Mysore. Varuna lake in particular doesn't even have a proper boundary defined. As a result encroachment into the lake bed would be a fairly easy task. More so considering the pace at which Mysore is growing. We can at least plant the boundaries of this lake with bamboo which is fast growing and could act as a natural boundary. We could think of planting other species of trees later. I can even get the bamboo seeds for planting, so we could start any time. Being a lake shore, water wouldn't be a problem too. May be, we could have this task as our current agenda. Other suggestions are welcome too.
