Now that we have done our bit, we have made arrangements for watering of the site twice a week and eagerly await the blessings of Mother Nature…. We had 83 volunteers today and we did our bit.

Caring for the young, we often miss caring for the elders. Green Saviours drives can be so philosophical that they leave one with lessons for a lifetime. We were busy cleaning spaces around the new trees planted on the site when these larger and older ones seemed to be looking at us with anger and envy. Amidst discussions that they needed not up keeping, we decided to indulge and gave their base a thorough cleaning job. I guess we must have left them happy. They are the survivors on the rugged terrain and ignoring them would have been utter disrespect. So what if their roots are set, a caring hand always means a lot. Looking forward to their green blessings……

The dynamics of plantation sites can be quite challenging. One such site is the Zilla Tarabethi Sansthe site at Sangameshwar Nagar. The Green Saviours team has planted close to a hundred trees there. The terrain is quite rocky beneath and the soil seems to drain very fast. It has been quite challenging both for our trees and us but we are happy that both have managed to get a grip of our responsibilities. The team visited the site early morning and watered the plants. The challenge would be to motivate the officer trainees there to help us by watering on a regular basis.

Unfortunately 9 trees had not survived due to water logging in the rainy season. New trees were planted in the pits. Arrangements have been made to ensure watering of the 51 trees at the site and what was interesting to note is that all the Jackfruit, Banyan and Peepal trees have survived despite the nature of the site to accumulate water during the rains.

The temple management will be taking care of the trees. The team also spent some memorable moments in laughter and frolic and enjoyed the short picnic at the wonderful locale. A local cook provided frugal meals and the rustic flavour was a treat to the senses. After weeks of working together, it was wonderful to note to enhanced degree of bonding between members of the Green Saviours family. The initial hesitancy to mingle has been replaced by a wonderful sense of togetherness and what makes it more special is the dedication to the cause. Green Saviours is happy to announce that we have secured a distinct foothold in the region around Jamboti for plantation and we now have several invitations to plant trees right up to Kanakumbi; the region of our focus since it would make a difference to the climate in Belagavi.

The Green Saviours team revisited the plantation sites at Syndicate Bank Colony, Ganeshpur and Hukkerimath and cleaned up the spaces around the trees planted earlier. As we pile up numbers and work towards our goal for the 26th successive Sunday, the one thing that stands out is that every site has different dynamics in terms of the type of soil and it’s capacity to drain or hold water, the growth patterns of each sapling and also weed management along with several issues that emerge with the manner in which other people influence the site.
