India & China- the two economic powerhouses of Asia – are contributing significantly to the greening of the planet, according to a new global study. Greening refers to increase in total leaf area- forests, croplands, orchards, mono culture plantations, commercial plantations and terrace gardens.
Meet Mr. K.C. Ashok Kumar, a passionate green lover, who has started collective efforts to convert all the empty terraces and balconies into lush green vegetable gardens. The decreasing green cover and unhealthy veggies in the city worried this man, which led him to think about terrace vegetable gardens. Lots of efforts were put into designing the soil media by consulting many eminent people in gardening sector.
Today around 80 underprivileged and uneducated people work in his organization “MY DREAM GARDEN’ to achieve the green goals. They are helping those people who are interested in gardening activities. They have setup around 5000+ gardens in entire Bangalore city till now and providing a maintenance services.
He is coming up with new plans and projects to help people gardening easy like, MDG Gardening App, Garden Training Center and Garden Communities etc. If we all join our hands together to help them achieve green goals, soon we can bring our Garden city back.
