Saplings of fruit bearing trees were distributed to tribal families of Vechapathy, Vellakulam and Moolagangal villages in Sholayur panchayat. The saplings were donated by a MNC company in Smart city, Kochi. The plantation drive was started in July 2020.
The farmers are given 2000 saplings every month. The plantation drive is expected to continue till July 2021. The trees when they grow up are expected to add to the green cover as well as provide a regular income to the farmers by sale of fruits.
