37th Tree Appreciation Walk on 7th April,13 at Mahakali’s ALM Garden in Andheri (E) : April called Aprilis, from aperire, means “to open”……… allusion to its being season when trees & flowers begin to“open”……….trees, shrubs, climbers, the whole world of plants are doing exactly the same everywhere at this time of the year…….….Warming up to Spring!
We have been invited by Mahakali ALM (Advance Locality Management), Andheri East, to conduct a Tree Appreciation Walk in their Garden, to feel the magic of spring on trees………..in their garden, where one can stand on his/her toe & touch the flowers of Nagkear, Sita Ashok…..can check out the male & female flowers of Putranjiva….. can admire the fruit laden trees of Bael and Star Apple.
Mahakali ALM is an NGO involved in the development of the Andheri East area around Mahakali Caves working under the guidance and support of Mumbai Nagar Palika with the active co-operation from the local citizens.
They maintain a lovely garden with a lush green lawn, children’s play area , wooded area for meditation and have some beautiful trees like Baobab, Tiwar, Sita Ashok, Undi, Amalta, Bakul, Kailashpali, Bael…….Some of them are flowering & fruiting……its hard to believe that 10 years back it was a garbage dump. They encourage tree plantation in their area, give free sapling in monsoon, almost finalized to set up a bio gas plant in the garden, run a small library……we invite you all to join us for the Tree Walk in their lovely paradise….
