Grand idea. But in the picture I saw few trees...............

In spite of getting back to nature this is not a wild all animal setting such as the Amazon area. The whole idea smacks of man and his creature comforts/greed.
However.....It is a start of sorts to getting people thinking about how it was at one time, how it should be.

The success of this expanding depends so much on reducing world (India"s) population........Afterall the population is exploding faster than these places can be built and that reduces the chance of many more of them being develope for lack of space.

Plant life......Plant trees....................
