The first week of July is celebrated as Van Mahotsav in India since the 1950. The timing is just right for planting trees since the monsoon prepares the soil. Delhi Greens urges everyone to plant at least one tree during the Van Mahotsav 2019.

Van Mahotsav or Forest Festival was initiated by the then Union Agriculture and Food Minister of India Kanaiyalal Maneklal Munshi (popularly known as as Kulpati K.M. Munshi) in the year 1950.
