Seed Bombing Cycle Ride (Independence Day Special)
“The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second-best time is now.” – Chinese Proverb
This Independence Day, it is our golden chance to do a little bit more for our motherland. Time to start cycling, time to start planting, the message is loud and clear, it’s never too late to start doing the right thing! Mother Earth has blessed us with almost everything in a decorated platter and we have left no stone unturned to destroy it.
On 15thAugust, i.e. on the “70th Independence Day”, Carvan Trips in collaboration with iKheti brings an opportunity for you to make a difference. Join us as we pedal away without a care in the world through the lush greenery of our very own Aarey Gardens, and lend us a hand as we go about planting as many seed bombs as we can.
Let’s unwind after the ride and share some stories together over a cup of hot beverage at a quaint café in Marol called “Bombay to Barcelona”, followed by an interesting talk on sustainable urban farming by iKheti. Bombay to Barcelona is run by an active philanthropist and author Amin Sheikh who only employs underprivileged children to work at his café.
Nothing beats the fulfilling feeling of a cycle ride and planting a tree. With a small seed, we pedal towards a brighter future. Due to the recently proposed Metro Station, we’re witness to the sacrifice of a lot of trees inside Aarey. So, let us do our bit and plant more trees and make this Independence Day truly count!!!

10:00 am: We reach Bombay to Barcelona Café and bond over some hot beverage
