The Gram Panchayat President has taken up the responsibility along with the local primary school to ensure “Every sapling will blossom into a tree!!” and invite more plantation activities to be done in 3.5 acres of tank foreshore land.

Trees, with their deep reaching root networks, act as natural groundwater recharge structures and are essential to the rejuvenation of Kumudvathi River.
