How do you grow a forest in your garden?

“Inspired by Indian eco-entrepreneur Shubhendu Sharma, whose company develops native and urban forest in cities, Qureshi immediately decided to implement the idea in Karachi in a park adjacent to Neher-e-Khayam in Clifton Block 5. Almost two years later, 95% of the saplings he planted are growing into healthy trees.

The forest is now 20 to 25 feet dense and it is almost impossible to freely move inside it due to its verdure of differing heights and sizes. The forest now also attracts different kinds of birds, insects and worms, which makes it bio-diverse. Colourful butterflies have also been spotted fluttering about

The recent rain has also left its mark on the forest, as the lush greenery coupled with untamed foliage makes it seem like a true mini-forest.”
