  • Description


    I am Nandan - my home is at a small village at Diguvapalem, Thettu Village ,Chittoor District , Andhra Pradesh near Rishi Valley School. I wish to help my village in becoming sustainable by growing organically, taking care of our environment and giving environmental educational exposure and to all the members at the village.

    Our landscape is in the Eastern Ghats and is beautiful and hilly. It falls in the rain shadow region in the Deccan Plateau in South India. Therefore the forest type surrounding us is dry scrub to dry deciduous forests.

    Bangalore (150km) and Chennai (280km) are the closest cities followed by Hyderabad (550km). Madanapalle is closest town (20km). Our village is very close to Rishi Valley School.
