• Permaculture in India

    by  • January 6, 2008 • The Global Picture • 4 Comments

    Bill Mollison, the founding father of the Permaculture movement, gives us a quick tour of one of his many projects. This time we’re in central India, a couple of hours north of Hyderabad — walking amongst mangoes, bananas and a wide variety of other fruit and vegetables. What’s special about it is this ‘food forest’ sits on what was, only a couple of years earlier, a dry, hard, barren wasteland.


    flattr this!

      I will be in India from January to April 2010. I would like to volunteer in a permaculture farm to participate in something positive and meet local people in another way than a touristy way.
      I am a gardener at home (Canada)and a (French) language instructor.
      Any suggestions?
