Character: AuroOrchard is a 44 acres farm about 4 km from Auroville; created in 1968,
it was the first farm of Auroville! The farm grows vegetables (cucumber,
long bean, egg plant, tomatoes, capsicum, ladies finger, sweet corn, celery,
basil, tapioca, sweet potato...), fruits (avocado, mango, cashew, lime & lemon,
pomelo, banana,papaya...) and raises chickens for eggs, this on a large scale.
The farm is under organic conversion since October 2012.
We welcome all who wish to participate in the renewal of the farm
and care for the earth by restoring the fertility of the soil
and its biological activity (green manure techniques, mulching...).
We would also appreciate help of persons skilled in taking nice pictures,
fb page animation, communication...
Please contact us if you are interested. We look forward to seeing you !
Please note that we have no accommodation.
