A forest has been cultivated on 20 cents of land on the premises of Port Museum, which is being set up as part of the Heritage Project, using the Miyawaki method. This forest has been implemented by Kerala Development and Innovation Strategy Council (K-DISC) .

As part of creating the mini forest, 3,200 saplings of 100 species have been planted here. Majority of the saplings being planted are of indigenous species. They include medicinal and fruit-bearing plants. Apart from supporting local wildlife, the mini forest will help in sequestration of carbon. The land for planting saplings was prepared by adding cow dung and other organic fertilizers to the soil to make it more fertile.
