Van Mahotsava is an annual tree planting festival in the month of July. During this festival thousands of trees are planted all over India. In 1950, it was started by K. M. Munshi, the Union Minister for Agriculture and Food at that time. It was started to create awareness in the mind of the people for the conservation of forests and planting of new trees.
On Van Mahotsav, Hope Foundation’s International Institute of Information Technology, Pune has taken an initiative to spread awareness about importance of planting & nurturing of trees among all students & staff.
