Sustainable Living in Auroville

Yesterday, at the Sustainable Living Institute in Kottakarai was a workshop conducted as a part of a Reasearch program between Heriot Watt Univeristy, Findhorn Foundation College, Scene Connect, CSR, Buddha Garden and Auroville Consultancy. The workshop was meant to learn from the local farmers about the challenges and opportunities in the Tamil Nadu farming community.

This interview is with Micheal and Andrew who are visiting academics from Findhorn Foundation College and Herriot-Watt university. They are developing sustainable agriculture and energy conserving practices . They talk about the technology being tested here could potentially be implemented at a mass scale, and help drastically reduce the unbridled consumption of natural resources. The irrigation systems being developed could result in a 60% reduction in water consumption of irrigation, reduction in compost input, increase in yield and increase in nutrient content of the harvest.
