With blessings of Guru Nanak Dev Ji, EcoSikh created 33 sacred forests in name of Guru Nanak, all across Punjab and fewer outside Punjab. Starting from Gill Patti Bathinda coming all the way to 33 forests was a completely different journey. EcoSikh is extremely thankful to all the individuals for making it a success story, not for all of us but also for our mother nature.
About Guru Nanak Sacred Forest Project: Under this project EcoSikh has been facilitating the micro forests in the urban and rural areas of India and especially Punjab with a focus to conserve flora and fauna of the land, preserve the endangered plant species, improve soil biodiversity, air quality and to check the depleting water table of Punjab.
About the Methodology: EcoSikh follows the Miyawaki methodology to create dense forests. Named after a Japanese Botanist, Dr. Akira Miyawaki, this methodology is based on the potential natural vegetation of the area. Dr. Miyawaki has planted around 50 million trees all over the world, and in 2006 he won Blue Planet Prize which is equivalent to the Nobel Prize in the environmental field.
Salient features of Guru Nanak Sacred Forest:
– 30 times denser
