On August 18, 2022, ISCI Foundation continued its commitment to reforestation by preparing an impressive batch of 75,000 seed balls. These seed balls mark the second phase of the foundation's reforestation program, aiming to contribute towards the green revival of Dholpur's forests.
At the Modi Tiraha branch in Dholpur, ISCI Foundation orchestrated the production of 75,000 seed balls, following its earlier effort of creating 25,000 seed balls during the first phase of the program. The event was graced by esteemed guests, including Mr. Daoudyal Agrawal, Branch In-charge of Dang Vikas and Senior Assistant of the District Council, as the chief guest, along with Mr. Pranav Mukherjee, Regional Secretary of the All India Ex-Servicemen Welfare Association, and Mr. Jayant Ji Maurya, President of Bharat Vikas Parishad, Dholpur.
The chief guest initiated the event by lighting the lamp before Bharat Mata, symbolizing the beginning of the program. ISCI Foundation's Director, Sweta Ji, highlighted the objective of this program, which aims to plant 100,000 trees through seed balls in the marked areas within the Van Vihar region. This initiative collaborates with 'Jodo India' to maximize its impact and has already sown 25,000 seed balls in the first phase. The second phase, which commenced today, involves the creation of 75,000 seed balls, which will soon be dispersed in the forests.
Mr. Anil Yadav, Deputy Conservator of National Chambal Sanctuary, and Mr. Ranvir, Ranger of Van Vihar, provided vital support in this endeavor. The event emphasized the significance of reforesting barren areas with the help of seed balls, effectively reviving greenery. The program's guests, through their insightful speeches, highlighted the importance of involving the younger generation in environmental activities.
ISCI Foundation's Director, Mohit Ji, expressed gratitude for the collaboration of volunteers and communities in creating 75,000 seed balls, utilizing seeds of indigenous tree species like Desi Babool, Bel Patra, Amla, Imli, Neem, Bargad, and Peepal. These seed balls are fortified with organic manure and black soil, ensuring their longevity and easy germination during rainy seasons. Volunteers Siddharth and Kartik also actively participated in the seed ball preparation.
This event, a testament to ISCI Foundation's unwavering dedication to environmental conservation, reiterates the foundation's commitment to fostering a greener, more sustainable future.
