AYUDH, in association with various stakeholders, including the Maharashtra Forest Department, has taken the responsibility of implementing this campaign in Pune.
To kickstart the project, AYUDH organized a seed ball making workshop on the day of the inauguration.

AYUDH has planned to extend the campaign’s reach by organizing seed ball workshops in local communities, 250 schools, universities, NGOs, and societies. The aim is to encourage widespread participation and create a network of enthusiasts who can actively contribute to fostering a sustainable and resilient environment.
Dr. Santhosh Bikulal Chavan, appreciating the initiative, highlighted the role of afforestation in reducing soil pollution, a pressing concern exacerbated by globalization and environmental degradation. He commended the efforts of AYUDH and emphasized the importance of conserving nature and planting trees to tackle these issues effectively.
