CGR strives to promote the restoration of green cover in ecologically degraded drylands through innovative approaches. For the last two years, CGR promoted propagation of green cover through seed ball dispersal. Seed Balls consists of a variety of different seeds rolled within a ball of clay adding humus and compost. The seeds prepared and shelved can be scattered on the setting of the monsoon or any other favourable time of the year. The main participants in this programme are school children.
Seeds of Custard apple, Jammi, Raavi, Juvvi, Marri, Amla, Tamarind, Gulmohar, Regu, Rela, Drumsticks etc. are used in the making of Seed Balls. CGR involves school students in the preparation of seed balls.
Since inception, CGR has facilitated preparation of more than 2 lakh seed balls and scattering of above 1 lakh seed balls in the village wilderness south of Hyderabad and Penuganchiprolu mandal in Krishna district.
