Subhendu Sharma used to work as an engineer before he quit his high paying job to start Afforestt, a company that makes natural forests in small spaces using the unique Miyawaki methodology to grow saplings. This allows them to convert any land into a self-sustainable forest in a couple of years. They’ve successfully been able to grow 48 of these forests in over 4 years.
It all started when Subhendu decided to assist a naturalist professional, Akira Miyawaki to cultivate a forest near a place where he worked Miyawaki’s technique has managed to regenerate forests from Thailand to the Amazon, and Sharma thought to replicate the model in India. And therefore started a company that helps places turn into bio diverse ecosystem.
