Rationale: 
Tiny Forest Project (mini-forest ecosystem)
A forest planted by humans, then left to nature’s own devices, typically takes at least 100 years to mature. But what if we could make the process happen ten times faster? Shubhendu Sharma creates this tiny forest idea in India and we could implement this idea into our nearby area.
