There are various activities in which people can volunteer themselves at Surabhivana. These activities include maintenance and the upkeep of the gaushala and its premises. If people are fond of cows, they should know what are the things required for the healthy environment for cow, or in other words, for a healthy cow. Gaushalas are the shelters where cows live. A good care of gaushala must be taken in order to protect the cows from any sort of disease. People can do cleaning of the gaushala on the regular basis and keep a watch on insects or other pests, so that the cows can live freely without any disturbance. Other activities which one can do as a volunteer include Tree plantation, landscape irrigation etc. Tree plantation is necessary for trees provide oxygen and greenery to us. It is also useful for the cows while grazing. It needs only two to three men to plant a tree in gaushala. Saplings will be provided to the persons interested in planting them around surabhivana.

landscape irrigation – By land irrigation, we mean the irrigation provided to fields, plants, trees etc. by way of drip irrigation and sprinklers.

Small but important jobs like checking the pipes, if there is leakage or not, is useful. Filters can also be cleaned and faulty or affected pipes can also be changed. All these things are necessary and can only be done by people expert in this job or in other words, those who have knowledge about it.
