Bhoomi Eco Village, Gumlapuram

The Space

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. The land now tells us a completely different story, one of rejuvenation, restoration and tuning in with nature in a small community of humans, cows, dogs and sometimes visits by elephants and other animals from the nearby forests. The farm includes a young food forest where several varieties of fruits and vegetables are grown in addition to some millets, pulses and oil seeds.

Basic Infrastructure with eco-friendly buildings, simple and nutritious food and an attempt to live without harmful chemicals and with minimal plastics are all aspects of this space.

Learning Opportunities

Bhoomi Eco Village has been designed as a model farm / learning space to invite like-minded people who are keen to understand the importance of ecological farming and consider it as a viable livelihood option. It is also envisioned as an experiential learning laboratory for ecological and sustainable living for school and college students.
