Planting season continues at MNP

                 The corn to be harvested on KGI DAY is growing green and healthy!


Butterflies have started visiting us too... 
The young and old are  eager for activity
Vipul and Nimita plant more saplings.



Planting a red variety of banana for first time directly on the slab of the water tank. 


Sprinkled ash and rock powder 






Finally mulched well.Remember Banana loves semi decomposed bio mass and responds very well to lots of Mulching! Watch it grow.....


Sammit a young urban leaf member sharing what he has learnt at 
the Summer Camp to  Mayank who had come for the first time with his parents.


                               Sammit holding out earthworms... actually showing off : )

 Mayank, shy and skeptical at first of creepies and crawlies, soon became friends with them!




Monsoon having blessed us with the initial showers is playing truant. again. A prayer to the rain gods.
Pray, do not desert us!
