Living Ecology is dedicated to regenerating the Earth. We share skills in increasing local water, forests and food. We have a special focus with poor communities in India.
Living Ecology was created to help Aranya Agricultural Alternatives (www.permacultureindia.com) host volunteers and program participants. They are an amazing NGO in India that has reforested thousands of acres and transformed villages of landless poor into food and economically self sufficient villages. Living Ecology created a program that would further permaculture students experience and education through mentorship with a master elder permaculturists in an aid setting. The goal is to turn interns into confident designers who know how to start an effective project anywhere in the world. Intern projects will be showcased to the international community when Aranya hosts the 2017 International Permaculture Conference.
