Fundraising for Sadhana Forest @ Auroville, Tamil Nadu

*Personal note: These guys are genuine.. I've visited them in Auroville, Tamil Nadu, as well as gotten first-hand accounts from a large number of people from many different places. And they've got the solutions, the know-how, the experience, to restore ANY dry/wasteland to a lush living environment with minimal input costs. What they've done for the region near Auroville, if replicated elsewhere, would go a long way in moving regions permanently out of drought condition, restoring forests and restoring agricultural land fertility. Your money will be put to good use here. Also, In case you have the contacts, please connect them to governments or policy groups or parties who can take the best practices here, bring in the necessary resources and implement them at broader scales. They are busy doing the intensive work so it's up to the rest of us to scale it up.

Sadhana Forest just celebrated 10 years of work.

These 10 years have been wonderful, creative and at the same time, extremely challenging.

In India, we have planted over 29,000 trees and harvested hundreds of thousands of cubic meters of water. In Haiti, Sadhana Forest has planted 80,000 food-producing trees that will feed up to 70,000 people and trained 7,000 Haitians in agroforestry and permaculture.

These days, we are starting Sadhana Forest Kenya, creating food forests with the Samburu people who suffer from drought and malnutrition.

Sadhana Forest has been funded by one-time donations, which have brought us this far, but are very unpredictable. In order to continue our work, we now need your support. We are now launching the Sustaining Member program that will enable you to contribute a small amount on a monthly basis. Any amount would help us!

Thank you very much for your help!

Love,

Yorit and Aviram
