Concerns on Food Habits

As a kick-off for the presentation of the Auroville Sustainable Agriculture Plan (ASAP), within the next few months, Auroville Radio presents a series of eleven interviews concerning the foods we eat in Auroville. What were the ideas in the old days of Auroville regarding agriculture and sustainable foods? Which agricultural developments did Auroville been through since the first Aurovillians started to change the dusty plains into the forest it is today? How is the present situation in Auroville’s greenbelt and what is it capable of? And, perhaps most important, what are the challenges for the future?…

…Different people, all involved in Auroville’s food sector, give their personal views and opinions on these matters from their own background…In this fifth interview Jeff (Discipline Farm) gives us insights to Auroville’s food habits and how it influences the goal of a self supporting Auroville. Why is ASAP important for a self supportive Auroville? And which areas should it cover? Jeff shows us that there is a lot of work to be done in the field of food production and Auroville’s awareness of the origins of food.
