With micro forests, how a district in #Punjab expands its green cover

The Miyawaki method, which was devised by Japanese botanist Akira Miyawaki in the 1980s, is a technique to create micro forests over small plots of land. Achieving this goal requires planting a wide variety of plants in a fairly dense manner so that the plot of land has different layers of a forest such as shrubs and canopies and not just trees. Plants typically require anywhere between eight to nine months of care before reaching a point where the micro forest becomes self-sustaining.
