Give a Child a Tree to Plant

Give a child a tree to plant . . . and watch them grow together.

1993 and 2014

This is the vision of Maharishi School alumnus Vikas Narula (1990), founder of Neighborhood Forest. Neighborhood Forest gives trees (6-12 inches in size) to school children every Earth Day. Since 2010, they have reached over 10,000 school children who have helped plant over 5000 trees. Vikas is helped in this endeavor by his brother Vivek Narula, 1988 graduate of Maharishi School.

This year, Maharishi School is participating in the Neighborhood Forest program, so we--who watched “the boys” grow up together--can plant trees with children and watch them grow together. Perhaps we’ll have a 2015-2036 photo to share someday!

The trees are 6-12 inches in size, delivered during Earth Week (April 20-27). The species of tree you will receive is an Eastern White Pine. They are native to the state and grow quite quickly. Planting instructions and species information will be emailed a few days prior to the trees arriving.
