What is Petra?

We were hosting Uma and Torkil this morning in our studio, and the talk was on PETRA. What is Petra, where it came from, where is aiming….
Out of Retreat in 2015 many (working) groups has emerged, and one of them was Integral Entrepreneurship Lab, from which group Petra was born. The group is growing, expanding, merging … because their member feels the need that Auroville moves from urban village toward sustainable township, offering enough support for the human resources to join.
Petra ( a working name, homage to late Petra) would not only be a gateway or filter, but also a place where economy should become a catalyst to turn things around, and develop the city of Dawn; it aspires to be a meeting pong, borderline with holistical approach with inbuilt possibilities and opportunities for residents and visitors alike.

To Heal Skin Problems

Sarah arrived in Auroville as one of many Weltwaerts volunteers from Germany, and has decided to work with plants, since that is her passion, and maybe her future line of work with environmental science. Most of time here she spent at Botanical Garden continuing with the work of a garden someone started last year., and as she mentions, some one will continue after her …

Sarah compiled booklet, which supposed to be the first one in the series, on Local Medicinal Plants in Tamil Nadu. That one is focused on healing skin problems with local plants.
So many possibilities, and freedom to chose , would be high on the list of things Sarah like about Auroville, followed by her good relationship with Makachi, a Tamil woman with an enormous knowledge on plants and their uses, who generously shared her knowledge with Sarah…..

A Dream Comes True

At MMC in Town Hall we had a chance to hear whole hearten genuine presentation( even might not be technically perfect) by Asia and Yam on their adventure to the place in South Africa where are white lions.
12 Auroville Lion Hearted kids participated in OUR (One United Roar for Lions and Nature), and Asia and Yam were among those 12 of the world who won the talent challenge, and been rewarded with a trip to South Africa.
We saw both winning video and some short clips from their adventure with power point presentation.

The whole thing started about 6 months back when Aikya has returned from South Africa with the book ‘The mystery of the White Lions’ by Linda Tucker and message on white lions, and importance of their preservation … and with the information on talent challenge One United Roar for Lions and Nature
