The village Pokamakalapalli is appealing to everyone today to financially support their plan to plant 4000 saplings to increase the green belt. Apart from improving the moisture retention in the soil, the wild grass will feed the cows, sheep, goats and other animals. Not only this, the farmers can also procure fresh organic manure from the forest bed, and do away with harmful chemical fertilizers.
The scarcity of drinking water has caused a crisis for the farm animals and also severely affecting the village economy. Rain is the primary source of water for the village, followed by groundwater whose levels have depleted alarmingly over the past few years. Constructing a bigger pond will help the animals to have ample drinking water throughout the year and also it helps the groundwater table to rise.
