It is a composite planting of fruit bearing, medicinal, aesthetic, shady tree species. CGR facilitated the programme in Kasturba Gandhi Balika Vidyalayas (KGBV), Wanaparthy district during 17th August – 2 September 2017.

The programme was also implemented in three TS Model School Girls hostels. Vegetable seeds for kitchen garden, compost, and implements for the maintenance of the Balikavanam were also provided.
