Come , join us and help the plants grow.
We welcome all committed people who can help us for expanding the activity to other locations in Pune or any other city. They can join us at two locations - hanuman tekdi and Chatursungi hills. We water the plants weekly twice on Chatursungi hills and almost daily at hanuman tekdi hill. We have all infrastructure in place - water , water cans, plants . But this work is unending ....there is still lot of things to do.

Celebrate birth day on the Hill
We encourage people to visit one of the hill on your birth day. Kids also enjoy plantation and watering of plants . Planting a tree is not at all costly and complex but the satisfaction that you will get is not measurable. Just come ... join us .....it is one way to show your commitment for your environment.

Financial support
We do not need millions of rupees to make all this work. We need regular water for 8 months in the year. We need two labours for each hill for making bunds along the slopes and on top of the hill for water harvesting. We need additional labours after each monsoon to cut grass. It is difficult to get labours who are willing to do work on hill tops. But we have managed to hire two labours till now. We need your support to expand and to maintain existing set-up.

We are looking for 100 people who can contribute Rs 1000 per year for next one to five years. If you are interested then please contact us.
