A post shared by Aranya Agri. Alternatives (@aranyaagriculturalalternatives)


Aranya is a Unicef acclaimed organisation that works towards changing the ecological discourses in the country. The organisation's site mentions that 'aranya' is a Sanskrit term that literally translates to 'forest' and hence, the community tries to connect back with nature with its attempts at bringing sustainable agriculture practices to common use. In its 13-day course, they try to provide a thorough overview of permaculture ideas, design processes, and applications, with a special emphasis on permaculture in the community. The curriculum gives learners plenty of time to absorb theory, gain hands-on experience, and adapt to the farm's daily rhythms. It is a certified curriculum, enhanced and tailored to the local environment of Telegana while fulfilling the learning needs of each student.

Course Dates: February 12-24

Duration: 13 days

Location: Aranya Permaculture Academy, Zaheerabad, Telangana

Jambore Creek, Goa Permaculture Course

Jambore Creek in Goa is typically a Yoga and recreational centre. However, in 2022, the place has decided to host a permaculture workshop led by Smriti Malhi, who has over ten years of experience in the same field. The fifteen-day course could be an alternative and eco-conscious way of taking a retreat by the end of your holidays as the course focuses on the development of individuals through teaching them about nature. Details as to timings, stay, fees and other requirements are yet to be uploaded on social media sites.
