You can create a forest in less than 1000 days!

The term “crowd foresting” is a word coined by us to denote afforestation with public support. We can create forests in our courtyards or in public places. We can also join hands with like-minded people across the globe to create forests in our life time. Thereby forests can be created within 3-5 years.

The Miyawaki Model

The afforestation model developed by Prof. (Dr) Akira Miyawaki has proved to be the most effective solution for creating a forest similar to a natural one. With this method, we can create a forest within 3-5 years. On an average, we get 3 metre growth per year for a plant.

The major components of Miyawaki model afforestation are as follows

Crowd Foresting

We coined the term "crowd foresting" by clubbing 'crowd funding' and 'afforestation'. It may not be possible for individuals to create forests on their own because of space, time and resource constraints. But Prof. Miyawaki’s revolutionary concept in afforestation makes it possible for ordinary people to create natural forests.
