Project Summary

Panchavati Karumandurai is a self-sustaining Farm Community.

Project Description

Panchavati Karumandurai is a self-sustaining Farm Community.

This community named as Panchavati  is an attempt in re-introducing a Vedic alternative, which will be an agrarian, self-sufficient and an eco-friendly community with Simple Living, High Thinking as its motto. The members will get an opportunity to pursue their livelihood in a manner spiritual, close to nature and use this stable environment as a spring board to pursue the highest perfection of human life.

The community will endeavor to show that by living a common goal centered life, based on simple living, one can become very happy, peaceful and gradually self realized.  The Community is set up to bring a paradigm shift from the modern economy based on individualistic and self- centered living which leads to improper allocation of resources and exploitation. This is best adjusted if the traditional village type set up is brought in where  the entire community of people live in a close knit fashion depending on each other for their various needs thereby forming a pool of families run by mutual trust and co-operation.

This Panchavati project also envisions to farm one such big village type set- up with various activities of the community will be shared by community members who work collectively to achieve self- sustenance.

Currently, per-se there is no 'permaculture' design in place. But we are in the progress of devising some useful modifications, by adapting the principles in Permaculture way.

- Swales
- Better mulching
- Adjusting the current elements and making better zones
- much more

Legend of Badges

Note: The various badges displayed in people profiles are largely honesty-based self-proclamations by the individuals themselves. There are reporting functions users can use if they know of blatant misrepresentation (for both people and projects). Legitimacy, competency and reputation for all people and projects can be evidenced and/or developed through their providing regular updates on permaculture work they’re involved in, before/after photographs, etc. A spirit of objective nurturing of both people and projects through knowledge/encouragement/inspiration/resource sharing is the aim of the Worldwide Permaculture Network.

PRI Teacher

With the exception of the ‘Member’ who has never taken a PDC, all of the above can apply to become a PRI PDC Teacher. PRI PDC Teachers are those who the PRI recognise, through a vetting board, as determined and competent to teach the full 72-hour course as developed by Permaculture founder Bill Mollison – covering all the topics of The Designers’ Manual as well as possible (i.e. not cherry picking only aspects the teacher feels most interested or competent in). Such teachers also commit to focussing on the design science, and not including subjective spiritual/metaphysical elements. The reason these items are not included in the PDC curriculum is because they are “belief” based. Permaculture Design education concerns itself with teaching good design based on strategies and techniques which are scientifically provable.

PRI PDC Teachers may be given teaching and/or consultancy offerings as they become available as the network grows.
