An Auroville centre for permaculture and natural farming, a sustainability project on 6 acres, integrating permaculture and natural farming with an organic restaurant and education in the form of internships and workshops.
History & Today’s organization:
Solitude was started in January 1996 by a group of young Aurovillians with the vision of creating a self-sustainable farming-community. Krishna, one of the pioneers, has developed the farm with the ideas of Masanobu Fukuoka (one straw revolution) and permaculture techniques.
Vision & Missions:
Krishna observes that there is a real link and similarities between growing food through permaculture and build a society with humans. In permaculture as in our society, one has to generate the diversity and let nature express itself. Non-tillage techniques, mulching, intercropping and green manures, food processing, cooking, natural building, discussion, silence, art, music, poetry, film and swimming are components that make up our very unique experiential permaculture/sustainability workshops.
Solitude Farm is in the process of developing an educational syllabus that aims at running workshops for a wide diversity of groups from village women groups, schools, farmers and people who are exploring a new lifestyle.
Leaders & Team: `
There are 6 people living at Solitude with a healthy floating population of volunteers who are welcome to dive into the life on the community.
