History & Today’s organization

The Auroville Botanical Garden was initiated in August 2000 on an 50 acres empty piece of land, devoid of vegetation. Since its establishment the site is developing into a garden that celebrates the diversity of the plant kingdom. It has become a field for field for research in environmentally sustainable approaches to land management as well as a center for environmental education for local school children.  

Botanical Garden has created Botanical Services, a unit which engages in bringing ecologically sustainable solutions to the commercial, private and government sectors in the fields of landscape design, architectural design, and garden product design. It is a development that has synthesized much of Auroville’s past experience into a living example of how to create beauty in an ecologically and environmentally sustainable manner. 

Vision & Missions

Conservation and preservation of the Tropical Dry Evergreen Forest (TDEF) is the Botanical Garden’s mission.

Through educational programs, Botanical Garden aims at awakening local school children’s concern for environmental issues, specifically the protection of indigenous species. These programs aim at creating a model to be replicated in other educational centers. 

Team

The team comprises around 15 Aurovilians, 25 local staff and a fluctuating population of volunteers (normally around 10 people).
