Collective Tree Plantation Programme

Trees are, in other words protectors of Earth but with time the industrial revolution and explosion have led to global warming due to surplus quantity of carbon emissions and have reduced the trees count on Earth considerably. Considering seriousness of the matter, GCMMF & Rajkot Milk Union, have initiated collective Tree Plantation Programme from the last 5 years involving milk producers. Encouraged by the success of this campaign, in the year 2015-16,53000 saplings were planted by 9,000 milk producers of 43 dairy cooperatives.

VIRNAGAR Milk Producers Co-operative Society Ltd. planted one lakh saplings in Virnagar during 2010-11, setting a unique example of being the first village in India of planting so many saplings together. It should be a good lesson and inspiration to other Dairy Cooperatives to take interest in planting saplings which will bring Green Revolution in Rajkot District. All of VIRNAGAR Dairy Cooperative Society's workers, milk producers/farmers, staff members & officers of the union were associated in this programme and made it a grand success.
