Become a part of Mission Prakriti by signing up as an ambassador or Corporate signatory or champion for any of the following campaigns –
- Grow a city forest
City Forest: City forest is a small yet lush mini forest and carbon sink grown inside a campus or a public area to foster carbon sequestration. It also aids in improving the rainfall and water quality ecosystem of the locality.
Food Forest: Food forest is a special version of city forest that grows food products and thereby attracts rich biodiversity. Ultimate aim is to prove this model’s efficacy to the farmers in terms of reduced physical and material inputs and better returns. Once it is adopted by the farmers en mass it will also ensure sustainable land use and healthier vegetables and fruits for the community.
- Seedball Campaign
Seedballs or Earthballs are tiny balls of clay containing a variety of different seeds mixed with compost. This is an fun and excellent way of doing massive afforestation engaging your own communities (employees and families) in the process. Once ready, the seedball can be scattered in identified areas and city outskirts.
