Sustainable living at TGG Farm
The Green Gardens
A research project of TGG Foundation, an Ahimsa farm following ethical practices. A unique place to participate and experience sustainable living, a world in its natural habitat, a place that can ignite your conscious. Yes you got it right, we are talking about The Green Gardens (Coordinates: 11°36’27″N 76°14’6″E), a sustainable living research project of TGG Foundation maintained by Navajyothi (Kerala), a self help group supported by the Trust. It is located near Edakkal Caves, a UNESCO approved world heritage site, a place that has the reminiscence of stone age and its much correlated theories with Indus valley civilisation. It is certainly a location with some history worth exploring.
UKKO's Nature Connect
Here we see Ukko comfortably exploring the potential uses of this hand spade. First its something to reach for, when he grabs it the handle fills his fist and animates the sensation of touch, after some inspection of its weight and its various angles he is curious about its taste, “hmm since there is clay and good soil still attached the taste is not poor, but it is definitely not sweet like a banana or like mommas milk, say thinking of momma, I saw her put this guy in the dirt,” and so his exploration continues.
We do not exist to judge each other. We are not here to proselytize or display bigotry. Our world contains in it a great number of human teachers, preachers, gurus, news anchors, talk show hosts, online egoists, armchair psychologists, barstool therapists- essentially at every turn there is someone offering a solution, an anecdote, a guidebook, a right way, a manual for life. The greatest lessons we can learn often come from the raw relationship with our earth. As conscious beings we are inherently tasked to be the caretakers of our environment.
Every human right violations, fundamental right violations, violence of any kind, social discrimination, gender discrimination, etc are of great concern to us, since we feel it hurts the humanity of any/all consciously progressive individuals who wish to lead a peaceful life.
AARANYAM (Forest) project aims to restore biodiversity and revive native ecosystems through a natural process involving very little human intervention.
The journey of our first self help group fully funded by TGG Foundation started in late 2015 with the participation of 3 women from the farming community in Wayanad assuming collective responsibility.
When you arrive you will be greeted by the raw beauty of nature. You will experience a gentle spaciousness which asks very little of your physical energy. This is an intentional design, for many of us live in a space of constant stimuli, being bombarded by external influences which overwhelm us and make us struggle to focus in on discovering and creating our true purpose.
