Krishnan Krishnamoorthy, Functional Consultant, Logica
Logica has planted trees with Grow-Trees for employees. I led a team of volunteers to assist with the planting in the 2012 monsoons. It was a unique experience. The satisfaction and the contentment at the end of the day was exhilarating; it is a happiness that words cannot express. Everything added up - the joy of community that we shared with everyone - villagers, the volunteers, the ZP members, the Panchayat members, Para workers, the children, Grow-Trees.com members, the co-ordinators and of course, Nature.
It was out of passion and self-interest that drove us to plant trees. All the team members who participated in this initiative, displayed their commitment and dedication to the cause of environment. We have planted on behalf of each addition of employee who have joined us. It was well organized, professionally managed and a scientifically planned activity.
The initiative also helped us gain effective information about Indian Rural Life and methods to safeguard common lands. This taught us the inter-linkage of forest and agriculture and how it can be used for economic and sustainable development. We got to interact with the villagers and were very much inspired by their dedication towards the environment. The satisfaction of planting trees, economic development of the area, and adding a smile to the community was what we took back and we intend to carry on this legacy. I would definitely recommend Grow-Trees to others.
