  • Description

    Description

    We are a very unique and one-of-its-kind concept. The primary objective is to create a 100% carbon-negative, eco-friendly and self-sustainable organic village.

    Our project is located just 85 kms from Pune, on a peninsula spread across 350 acres with around 8 kms of water frontage. It is located at a very serene location in Sahyadri Hill Ranges surrounded by mountains on all the sides and on the backwaters of Neera Deoghar Dam, Bhor, Pune.

    It intends to conduct workshops on Sustainable & Integrated Farming/Natural Farming/Permaculture and Sustainable building construction with natural resources comprising bamboo, adobe, cob, wattle and daub, stone and mud, rammed earth, thatch etc.

    We are on a mission to create an ideal place where people can lead a carbon-negative, eco-friendly and a self-sustainable life with a very spiritually vibrant atmosphere. The operations of the above mentioned activities will be partly managed by volunteers.
