Van Mahotsav: A week long festival of plants


Tree Plantation Week was celebrated during the first week of the month of July. Every year Van Mahotsav is celebrated with a message to people.

Taking initiative towards sustainability for a better tomorrow, people across the world celebrated Van Mahotsav along with plantation drive and seed distribution.
