Living in cities, you may not have the time and space to grow trees. Despite the hectic lifestyle you’re caught in, Project GreenHands makes it possible for you to create your own green patch with just a click away.
If you are a greenie at heart, you can plant trees online and support Isha’s agro-forestry initiative.
Project GreenHands will
1. Let you know the exact location of where your trees are planted (GPS coordinates of farmland)2. Give you the name of the farmer who is growing your trees
3. Follow-up with the farmer for 2 years until the trees become self -sustainable
All it takes is Rs.100/$1.5 per tree. (Including post planting care and re-plantation for 2 years till your trees become self sustainable). You will receive your tree certificate & farmer details in April 2019
