Maa Dharti Project: Chapter 7 at T2F

Did you know that it’s possible to plant a whole forest (yes, forest!) in the middle of a sprawling urban barren metropolis such as Karachi, in only a matter of a few years? Well we didn’t until we met Shahzad Qureshi.
Shahzad works on creating forests based on Dr. Akira Miyawaki’s methodology which results in fast growing, self-sustaining, independent forests within 3 years! These are created with 100% native species and 100% organic biomass without the help of any fertilizers, chemicals, and pesticides. The first urban forest of Karachi is already blooming on a 400 square meter plot in the heart of Clifton and has become a regular haunt for species of birds otherwise rarely seen now in Karachi.

Shahzad Qureshi is a Textile Engineer by qualification and has been running multiple Entrepreneurial ventures over his work life. His ventures include Textile Sourcing, Ecommerce, Spa services and Urban Foresting. He has been involved in Supply Chain development, Quality Assurance, Training and Resources Development, and Marketing. He has been a member of Rotary International for over 20 years and worked on several positions at Club and District level. He is passionate about foresting specially in the cities and urban centers to help mitigate Climate Change affects.
