Important Information

Accommodation & Facilities

Polam Farm is a new and growing permaculture site. Many of the facilities will be used for the first time with our course. Be aware that this will not be a fancy hotel, nor an urban setting. The facilities will be clean and basic. While we will work hard to keep all facilities clean, everyone in the course will be expected to help by not creating a mess in the first place.

Accommodation will be available in several categories: In your own tent, a provided shared tent, shared dorm rooms (gender-segregated), double rooms and a very limited number of single rooms. The number of structural rooms (as opposed to tents) is limited.


All food will be vegetarian, with an option for vegan. Please let us know of any allergies, intolerances or other special dietary requirements upon registration. We will try to grow as much of the provisions on location as possible. When sourcing from off site, we try to get organic products if possible.


The climate in Telangana in November is generally warm and pleasant. Nights can be cool (long pants and a warm jumper/ light jacket). In cold nights in November, temperatures can go down to 14 ° C (57 Fahrenheit), and on hot days up to 32° C (90 Fahrenheit). The sun is always strong, so although it is not likely to rain much, a small umbrella is very useful for sun when walking around.

See climate diagrams:
