Monsoon Wooding Plantations 2017

Delhi is one of the most polluted cities in the world. We want to change this by planting thousands of trees this monsoon, with your help.

We have been actively involved in multiple plantation drives since 2005, having planted over 30,000 trees around Delhi NCR, with an average rate of survival of 80%. Monsoon Wooding is one such action-packed annual Swechha campaign that aims at conserving and creating green spaces. In 2013, we created Delhi’s first urban mini forest at St Mary’s School, Dwarka and there has been no looking back since. We planted Faridabad’s first Urban forest in 2014, once almost a barren land, now a lush green landscape.  This was followed by creation of Gurgaon’s first food forest and butterfly garden in 2015 with over 1500 saplings.

In 2016, over 2500 saplings were adopted by individuals on Bitgiving that led to the creation of forests, herb gardens and butterfly gardens in Delhi and Gurgaon. In total, over 10,000 saplings including herbs and shrubs were planted over the last one year.

This year, we aim to bring the jungles back to the city by planting thousands of saplings. Help us reclaim the green cover by volunteering with us for the drives. Write to us at volunteer@swechha.in or call at 011 29544678 to get more details.
