An excellent method of saving water for irrigation. A system devised in Israel in 1960, the water is fed to the plants drop by drop from holes in plastic pipes and the plants grow healthy with minimum usage of water.

With the water table decreasing in most parts of the country, this is an excellent method of replenishing the underground water supply. A pipe is put into the ground to take rainwater below the ground and help in raising the water table.

At Sabz Bagh a serious effort has been made to replace the use of steel or wood with bamboo.

Once bamboo is cut, it grows back again.

An environmentally friendly practice that reduces the carbon footprint for future generations.
