Cauvery Calling is a campaign to initiate the revitalization of Cauvery river and transform the lives of 84 million people. Cauvery Calling will support farmers to plant 242 crore trees in Cauvery basin by adopting agroforestry.
This will have the triple benefit of
1. Improving soil health by replenishing organic content in the soil.
2. Reviving the river and groundwater levels by increasing water retention in Cauvery basin by an estimated 40%.
3. Augmenting farmer income through agroforestry, proven to increase farmers’ incomes 300-800% in 5-7 years.
We need to donate Rs.42 for each tree sapling. Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev is personally riding from Talacauvery to Thiruvarur, covering the entire Cauvery basin, activating government action and farmer participation from 3rd to 15th September.

They put on the Cauvery calling hats, held placards, gave brochures and created awareness. In Chrompet Isha volunteers participated in the mega standing events from 7.30-9.30 am on September 3rd.
