The idea behind the name
bon in Bengali (our mother tongue ) means forest. Forest reminds us of the diversity and interconnectedness of lives.
bon wants to transform any available spaces for growing food into a forest-like system by introducing native varieties of trees and plants. No life in a forest works in isolation but in cooperation and healthy competition. Similar to that bon wants to create and be part of a strong and resilient network that is working for the common goal of biodiversity restoration.
