The vision behind the Experiential Learning Program (ELP) is to restore our traditional knowledge among the younger generation and to connect them with the natural environment. It helps the students to know the importance of preserving the nature with its full bio-diversity and its impact on the overall well being. During the ELP, the students will get introduced to ethical farming practices and the role of responsible farmers in keeping the food chain alive. The experience in working with the rural community will enhance their knowledge of ‘sustainable developments’ by preserving the eco-system for the future generations. It is an opportunity for them to inculcate human values and to self explore . It also provides an opportunity to understand stake holder engagements in agriculture sector through empowerment of the farming community and by eliminating all kind of social discrimination that exists in the society. 

Participation in our ELP Certification is expected to fortify one’s capacity for discernment, thereby supporting the realization of personal goals.
 
Duration & Fee

The preliminary ELP course is a 14 day program, and the fee is Rs . 10000/- (Rupees ten thousand only) + 18% GST; Accommodation and meals are included in the course fee, and are provided on site. We encourage light packing – to mean bring what you believe you need; nothing more, nothing less.

Online enrollment and 50% fee payment is done at least 3 weeks before the anticipated course date. On confirmation of enrollment certain readings ‘ELP Prep Material’, relevant to the course, will be made available via download and email. We ask that participants review the ELP Prep Material in its entirety before arriving at The Green Garden – a preliminary assessment will be held, as this material will be fundamental to the progression of the course.

Completion of the preliminary course grants participants membership to TGG’s Extended Family. Members of the extended family are eligible to receive concessions and visibility through TGG’s network. They can also set-up a social enterprise with the support of TGG Foundation to create livelihood for women in rural India with special focus on gender equality in wages. 

Curriculum
The ELP curriculum will present topics from the fields of architecture, agriculture, ecology, mathematics, physiology, psychology, and what may be  referred to as ‘life science’. The collaborative presentation of the various topics is tasked to encourage creativity of thought and awareness of socially identified needs. 
 
The cornerstone of our presentation style is experienciality. Through such exposure we hope to impart a pragmatic system of decision making, with which participants may access the ‘why’ of their actions. 
 
TGG Foundation understands a person who knows the “why” of their actions to be a congruent individual. Within society, congruent individuals are our leaders, role models & sages, but most importantly congruent persons are happy. Contended with their understanding of their personal relevance of being, in relation to the other, a congruent person is able to authentically dedicate themselves to any pursuit they identify as worthy. This is because such a mode of engaging has a substantially motivating and inspirational effect.
 

We hope to create responsible citizens who  lead the life of a realised being in this planet.
