Micro Miyawaki forests were made in every available strip of land at Puliyarakonam, largely on an experimental basis.  With a road being laid close to the plot, the incline had to be carved to make space.  Following the model that Dr Akira Miyawaki had introduced to create forests on mountainous areas, we created a series of terraces, fixing bamboo fences at various levels of the incline as boundaries, filled the intervening spaces with potting mixture, and planted trees in typical Miyawaki style.  Some of these spaces are barely one metre wide.  They ensure there is no soil erosion, and provide much needed greenery in the area.  The success of this venture incentivizes us to propagate them in urban areas where bare land is at a premium.
