Two years later, in September 2020 this project was successfully completed. The foundation planted 2000 saplings with the support of villagers from Satara district, Maharashtra. A careful mix of tree species was selected to mimic a forest and minutest attention was paid to the detail of the plantation so that they grew at a rapid speed. The final outcome is tremendous and to be proud of - extremely dense forest with healthy trees, habitat to animals, insects and much more.
