An Eco-Sensitive Neighbourhood in Mumbai

Kiran Wadhwa reports on the “Urban Oasis in D lane” in this article at the Hindustan Times.
The article talks about how the residents of this neighbourhood have been striving for over 12 years to keep their vicinity clean and green.


Children who help keep the lane clean get a chocolate as a reward. “I planted this tree when I was four,” says 14-year-old Kruti Shah proudly. “Every Sunday, all the neighbourhood children come down and either plant saplings, do vermiculture or just clean the area.”

Additional interesting thing about this neighbourhood is the way they manage their wet garbage. The garbage is put into a vermiculture pit and the subsequent fertilizer that is produced is used to nurture the various trees and plants in this area.
The ‘D’ Road is 600 metres long and located in Marine Drive.
