As part of the ‘Azadi ka Amrita Mahotsav’ and 125 years of Ramakrishna Mission celebrations, a massive plantation of native tree species was undertaken by Ramakrishna Mission Ashrama, Jhargram. The inaugural ceremony was held on 05 August 2022 on a 7-acre land allotted by the District administration, 3 km from the Nayagram town on the banks of the Subarnarekha river. Apart from other benefits, nearly 10,000 trees that will be planted here will prevent soil erosion and protect the villages located near the river. Another 2000 trees will be planted at schools/colleges etc. in four other blocks in the Jhargram district. The project includes fencing and regular maintenance of the trees for two years and is supported by Lexmark India Ltd as part of their CSR activities.
