Vanashree, is an 8 acre IMO certified organic farm. Vanashree has been organically and naturally  nurtured since 2006, and has been our "Discovery Lab". Located at Maralwadi, 50 kms from Bangalore, is very close to Bannerghatta forest range and surrounded by gently wooded hills.

Eco-sustainable living is the prime focus at the farm. We have been planting trees (4000+ covering 140+ species till date) to increase bio-diversity.  We are also trying to grow most of the essential vegetables, cereals and fruits. Solar based lighting and Gobar gas based cooking fuel  means our dependency on non renewable energy is minimal. Cows, small poultry, ducks, guinea fowl,  bee keeping and carp fish  in rainwater harvesting tank are core part of our experiments in integrated farming.

Living amidst nature has been a long cherished dream. Though not completely successful, we are getting there by shuttling between Bangalore and Vanashree. 

Vanashree, which means "Forest Wealth", is our effort to find some of the answers around sustainable living. Vanashree symbolizes 'simplicity' to us, oxymoron of sorts about 'wealth' and 'simplicity'. Its a place we are discovering ourselves....

Our effort is to sustain those activities which we believe can

  •  Improve soil quality and fertility by increasing the organic matter content of the soil, and by minimizing losses from soil erosion

  •  Increase the efficiency of resource utilization that can result in the most effective use of water and energy

  •  Promote biological diversity on the farm with the belief that this will result in improved  internal nutrient cycling and conservation

  •  Minimize impact on environment & nature

We try to capture the recent & key activities, experiences and events at Latest News. However, been delinquent in updating regularly.
