10,000 seed balls made by 700 children and 300 parents from Thiruthani School in a tiny village of Tamil Nadu (Thiruthani village) on Independence Day recently. Just in 3 hours parents and teachers taught the kids on how to make these seed balls and with their tiny hands and small palms they started to make seed balls. These balls are being thrown in and around nearby villages to grow into new plants during the monsoon.Clay and newspaper for making these balls was contributed by the parents and kids.
The local youth started to collect seeds. Goonj rewarded every kid with a Goonj Sitting Mat while every parent received a Goonj Family Kit as a reward for their efforts. Goonj Chennai team together with Danirasa foundation mobilised and collaborated with local youth and schools to make this a reality. Goonj also engaged the local community here in planting more than 1000 saplings and 10000 seeds.
