During the first year of a three-year project, nine awareness workshops were held on tree plantation and caring, eco club formation, environment protection, nursery raising, agroforestry and horticulture plantings. About 200 children, teachers, Panchayath members, parents, and village beneficiaries participated in the training program. Two sessions were held on after-care management of tree plantings and two training programs were held on promotion of nutrition gardens, growing of organic vegetables and promotion of herbal plants. 

733 agro-forestry plants like teak, Pongamia, cassesemia, gliricidia, neem, and silver oak were planted in 100 beneficiaries’ land, eight school grounds and one panchayath land. 655 horticulture plants like sapota, papaya, mango, jack fruit, lemon, drum stick, cashew nut, and custard apple trees were distributed and planted in schools grounds and beneficiaries’ land. The beneficiaries were selected based on their interest, land holding, and availability of water. In all these plantings, they expect to have 85% or better survival rate.
