Sapling Plantation

Posted on : Mar 27, 2021


Bengaluru’s transformation from a green garden city to the tech capital of India has changed a lot of things, including the landscape and the city’s green cover. Interestingly, as a part of the Aster Volunteers program, Aster RV Hospital, one of the best Hospitals in JP Nagar, Bangalore in association with Ramakrishna Mission, Shivanahalli focusing on recreational activities. Recently, they planted 150 saplings to reforest the area and restore the lost green belt around Shivanahalli. Shivanahalli is a small village in Kanakapura Taluk in Ramanagara District of Karnataka State.

According to a report published by the Journal of Environmental Management, the green cover of the Bangalore city has decreased by about 62 percent over a period of 44 years, which makes this initiative all the more important. This initiative is a part of “Project Kaanana”, a project aimed at the conservation and preservation of Bannerghatta National Park. Best doctors in Bangalore and other staff members from Aster RV Hospital contributed their time and effort in planting drive at the Ramakrishna Ashram at Shivanahalli.

The main objective of the initiative is to increase the green cover of the city. Aster RV Hospital, best multi-speciality hospitals in JP Nagar, Bangalore in association with Ramakrishna Mission, is looking forward to expanding the drive to other areas in the coming days. Species belongs to the chukrasia tabularis, ficus benjamina, pterocymbium tinctorium, ficus racemosa, melia dubia, Ailanthus excelsa were planted across half an acre of land. Ramakrishna Mission Ashram will do the watering of the sapling.

It was heartwarming to see the whole team labouring in the village to create a sustainable, clean, and greener future for the forthcoming generation. We hope to see a series of such tree-planting drives in upcoming days that can bring positive change in our environment.
