What to bring: Notebook and pencil to note down the information you will discover
Did you know that Bangalore is home to almost 1,000 different species trees? Yet it is easy to underestimate their immense value. Urban trees improve air quality, stabilize the soil and provide cool shade. Each species comes with a specialized role, from messaging in the root systems to hosting complex food webs in the branches.
The workshop will be covering:
- History of Bangalore's green wealth: our horticulture
- Identify common trees of the city by their physical appearance
- Using sensory skills - touch, smell, feel, observe making
- Connecting the dots between animals/ insects and tree species, symbiotic relationships between many species
- The Ecological and Climate stabilizing effect that trees have in an urban environment
- Horticulture and Gardening at home.
The workshop will end with a fun pop quiz for everyone and an ayurvedic plant for you to take home.
