[RECAP] Let's Map Green 🌲+ Clean The World 🧹Meetup (Combined)

Dear All Local Guides, 
I'm writing this recap with a great smile on my face as this meetup was super close to my heart and I had an absolutely amazing time organising this meetup

First of all I would like to thank @IlankovanTfor the great Let's Map Green Meetup idea and @Kashifmisidia bhai for pushing me to arrange a meetup related to plantation and I was super impressed by Khashif bhai plantation drive.

While I was planning for the metup after submitting the idea I was thinking why not do a cleaning activity side by side too and I remember reading @ermest post about Clean the world. So, I did a combined meetup and I first did the activity at a nearby park where I was joined by local gardeners (they came to the meetup because I told my home gardener about the meetup) I was so happy to see his friends. Also some of my friends and local community came out for the support of plantation drive. 

Here are some pictures - I bought some plants before the meetup and then planted those with my fellows. The very first plant was planted by my friend.

The first plantation drive took place near my house park, then I moved to a nearby school where my friend Sana was the lead and she helped the school kids to plant.

It was a tiring day but a day FULL of amazing memories. I'm so glad and thankful to ermest, Kashif misidia Bhai and ilankovnT for their amazing initiatives and their ideas pushed me to do the same. 

Hoping to arrange the next meetup on accessibility as proposed by @EmekaHouse

Thanks @Kashifmisidia bhaii, you are the force behind my meetups :D 
Else I will be just sitting at my home. Also after reading such news, I feel like we can collaborate with our local govt authorities to make these plantation meetups more big

Nice work @AIMAN_SAEED! Having a 2 for 1 meetup in one day, especially teaching children the importance of planting trees to help make our world a healthier, more beautiful place to live in.
