India’s Water Revolution #4: Permaculture for Wastelands at Aranya Farm

Andrew Millison – Jul 30, 2020

Permaculture instructor Andrew Millison journeys to India to film the epic work at Aranya Farm in the state of Telangana. We tour the twenty-year-old farm that was established on bare bedrock, and now boasts 11.5 acres of permaculture food forests, which has restored the groundwater table to plentiful abundance. Guided by Aranya’s directors Narsanna and Padma Koppula, we visit the surrounding area where the landless poor are now farming their own lands and turning bedrock into bounty using permaculture principles. This video clearly proves that wastelands can be transformed into verdant and productive agricultural systems, improving the lives of many.
