Aranya Eco Village is looking for volunteers [India, Tamil Nadu]

Message from the host

Dear Friend,

Greetings of the Day and warm welcome to Aranya Eco Village!

Aranya Eco Village is a social initiative by Rajnish Kumar and some of his friends committed towards Rural Development with a special focus on Agriculture and related livelihood opportunities. 

We operate from our young, six years old permaculture farms located at S Thattanapalli village of Krishnagiri district in Tamilnadu


Variety of activities promoting Organic and Natural farming and Sustainable way of living with significant Environmental Consciousness has helped us to attract many likeminded people. Our constant interaction with the village people on regular basis have opened up some constructive dialogues around Organic Farming and the trust that we gained over a period of time is tremendous to do many collective local developmental activities.
Volunteers from different parts of the world and various corners of the country has been a great source of energy in terms of Mutual Learning and Cultural Exchange for both farm and S Thattanapalli village. 

People, and culture exchange

People of varied socio-cultural, economic and linguistic background visit us for firsthand experience of Organic Farming and Village Life. We provide very basic accommodation and we always suggest our volunteers to carry sleeping bag if possible, bedsheet and appropriate seasonal clothes. 

Our kitchen both in farm and in village roof top room can be used for cooking and we don’t charge for accommodation. 

From past six years, we are running our initiatives with ‘Gift Economy’ in which people leave some gift of their choice at our place on voluntary basis. Sometime a pair of shoes, warm cloth, money and even towel by keeping the need future volunteers in mind. 

We are always happy to host and open for Mutual Learning from socially committed and sensitive people like you. Hope this visit will significantly contribute to your effort of ‘Understanding India from a Rural Perspectives’
