Green Acres

Sigrid is dedicated to raising funds to purchase land for green practices. The fund raising project is called Green Acres.
She briefly explains how the land prices within Auroville have increased over the past 10 years and developments within the area are on the increase. Already, various pieces of land within the Green Belt have been bought by outside parties. Further encroachment is very likely to happen where land has not yet been acquired by Auroville.
To help the fund-raising project we need to create public awareness of the importance and urgency of securing the land for Auroville; and we need to provide information of the good work done so far in the green belt area. The appeal is to all people of the world to help acquire land for this evolutionary project.

Stories of Forest

Striking to most of the visitors of Auroville are constant chirping of birds and indigenous evergreen tropical dry forest or lots of trees …
Birds wake up in early morning hours before dawn, and perky conversations or monologues are going on all day long.
Each morning starts with another story of a day ahead.
Human ears selectively choose what to hear , but microphone hears everything. It does notice distant temple music, bikes and constant wind of the area.
