Saplings are distributed free of cost at various centers across the capital for being adopted and planted by citizens who are invited to enrich Delhi's green legacy.  The first week of July is also celebrated as the Van Mahostav across India.

Happy Greening! For more info on finding a nearest free sapling pick up point near your house, write to contact@delhigreens.org with your locality in the subject line.
