History and today’s organisation:
AuroOrchard was created in 1968. The farm covering 40 acres produces fruits, vegetable, eggs with the help of organic methods to provide food to Aurovilians.
Vision & Mission:
In order to restore soil life and fertility , since 2012 we are in a process of a complete conversion to organic farming, using green manure, techniques of composting, mulching, BRF, rotations and associations, etc.
The work of AuroOrchard is inspired by Sir Albert Howard, Masanobu Fukuoka, Bhaskar Save, Claude and Lydia Bourguignon, these men and women who have opposed the ambient destructive practices to propose ways towards a certain dream of humanity.
Leaders & Team:
Led by Christian, the team consists of 11 workers and a varying number of volunteers.
