Coconut palms grow well in saline soil and can bindthe same. Besides, they can serve as windbreakers
and reduce the intensity of storms. Mukti grows coconut saplings and then distributes them among the locals. The gramsabhas plant these on wastelands and as part of roadside plantation from Raidighi to the coast. Mukti encourages farmers to shun chemical pesticides to tide over rising costs and adopt vermicomposting and organic farming. This, in turn, prevents the depletion of groundwater. Salt water rushing in and spoiling underground aquifers has been a cause for concern in these areas.
