Loss of ancient farming wisdom, unavailability of scientific agricultural knowledge and bad planting decisions have led to severe financial losses for farmers, who are forced sell their lands, migrate to cities for labour work and some drastic step like suicides
Added to this, due to severe climate change, the climatic patterns have now become unpredictable. Groundwater reserves are depleting at an alarming rate. Farming, which once was the noblest profession of providing nourishment, life’s fundamental need, to all human beings, has now been reduced to a socially backward position primarily because of farmers’ financial situations.
TREES FOR LIFE - is an agro-forestry initiative for promoting the planting of ecologically and economically beneficial tree saplings in farmlands, thereby offsetting/increasing farmers’ income
