Urban forest parks for the community was inspired by the Japanese concept of forest bathing (Shinrin yoku), defined as a visit to the forest for relaxation and to improve one's health

These parks so dense that they are rightfully named ‘Oxygen Parks’, and integrates usable green spaces into its design. Local communities and residents are involved in the entire process - from park design to plantation and maintenance. Please see a video showcasing one of the first oxygen parks our partner, Acacia Eco Trust, has developed in Ahmedabad - On this link

How this solution removes carbon
from the atmosphere!
01 Pre-Plantation
Park Design Locations that need and are conducive for urban forests are selected. The design of the park specifically accommodates a large number of trees, and provides the local residents with usable green spaces. Pre-plantation activities include site protection (boundary wall), setting up irrigation networks, cleaning of any debris/waste, soil analysis and master plan design.
02 Plantation
Park Construction The execution of the park includes procurement of materials for soil enhancement and soil preparation. Saplings of native tree species are selected which are germinated and nurtured in our own nursery. The local residents and wider community are engaged in the plantation process to increase awareness and ownership.
03 Post-Plantation
Maintenance and Monitoring Maintenance and upkeep of the park, including specific practices focused on parks in urban spaces, are carried out by a dedicated team from our partner.
The amazing developers
behind this solution

Acacia Eco is an organisation that specialises in executing land restoration projects across India. Acacia works with a strong mission of enabling climate-positive cities that cancel out more carbon than they emit.

Acacia deploys several plantation techniques, including high-density forests with multiple species, inspired by the Miyawaki method. This results in faster growth, greater biodiversity, and higher density within the forests. All these collectively aid significantly higher carbon sequestration. Acacia has restored over 100 acres of land, and planted more than 850,000 trees, covering nearly 75 different native tree species.
