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.



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. 

Our Projects

Ongoing Projects

Humanity First

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.

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.



Within the context of rural development, Micro credit systems have grown in popularity as a tool for empowerment of the people.

Rural Infrastructure Fund

Rural Development Hub

The background research for this project was conducted in 2016 by Allison Platt as part of a Master of Arts Thesis for Tufts University, Boston, United States in collaboration with TGG Foundation.  Permission for this research to be conducted was gained from the District Collector in Wayanad before it was carried out.


Human Rights Violation

This is the life of people in rural India.

 After 73 years of Independence, the plight of rural women in the most literate state is this. Is it so difficult to have a bank account in operation?. (That too when she has not taken any bank loan to face this kind of harassment),

If that is the case, should we encourage people to open a bank account from a  nationalized bank, with such an attitude?

There is no bitterness toward this failed system, but it is realized that it was not created by people who loved its citizens. It is our responsibility to correct such cases of human right violations, else our consciousness will not spare our existence.

Let us be the Change

TGG Foundation has started a micro credit facility to offer short term financial support to its members, SHGs, Social Enterprise, from the interest free loan received from The Golden Greens since 1st October 2016, with a 5 year moratorium to pack back.
