Bhoomi believes in co-creating spaces which can be used by many for learning, sharing and for being part of an expanding community of people who care about ecologically wise living.
The Bhoomi Campus has been designed as a space for learning through living as a community. Located in Chikkanaikanhalli, it is a beautiful space spread over 4 acres, with an organic garden to provide most of the vegetables used here. Students, faculty and guests are invited to join in the activities in the garden and kitchen at least for an hour every day.
Bhoomi Eco Village, located at Gummalapuram, about 40 km from Bangalore, is a learning space where programs are offered to individuals who are keen to understand and experience various aspects of ecological and sustainable living. When Bhoomi first started the project, this 22 Acre farmland was an almost treeless tract of land with poor quality of soil in an area that receives scanty rainfall.
Tiruvannamalai is the most economically backward district in Tamilnadu, The communities in this district however are largely a happy and willing set of people despite the high amount of debts, increasing addiction to alcohol and lack of employment opportunity. The summers are extremely hot and the region gets very little rainfall. The land is dry and interspersed with big and small boulders.
