Growing a forest

Kheoni was born out of a need to plant and sustain a forest (now a biodiversity-awarded site in central India). This involved planting 35000 trees over a barren hill in the last 7 years. To support this and several such initiatives across various forest ecosystems in India, Kheoni now has a beautiful collection of inclusive, hand-made, sustainable, and wellness-oriented products that also positively impact the environment.

KHEONI-the NAME

Kheoni is a small and pristine jungle of 135 square km, again, in the heart of India. It is home to FIVE resident tigers. We started our journey by controlling the forest fires of Kheoni by enabling a program through the Forest Department, wherein the tribals were allowed to collect the much revered Mahua (fruit of the Madhuca or Butternut tree) from the forest without having to harm the forest. Last year, Mahua was distributed evenly to the communities living around. Whenever they were not allowed in the past or there was an imbalance, they would resort to measures like putting fires in the forest to distract the forest guards. Given the limited resources of the forest department, it would take months to cease such fires. Removing dependency on the forest and giving them other options of livelihood like product making has brought a win-win situation and resulted in no forest fires last year.
