Mass scale sapling planting by AYUDH

AYUDH, the youth wing of the Mata Amritanandamayi Math, and GreenFriends, the Ashram’s environmental group, jointly organized a programme of planting 100,000 trees across the state of Kerala on November 16 to coincide with the first of the Malayalam month of Vrischikam. The programme is named as Vrischikam Onnu, Vriksham Onnu—literally meaning, “1st of Vrischikam, One Tree.” The programme is part of the nation-wide forestry programme undertaken by GreenFriends.
