It has been designed as a space for learning through living as a community. Students, faculty and guests are invited to join in the activities in the garden and kitchen at least for an hour every day.90% of the energy used for lighting, fans etc is from the sun. Composting, using organic soaps and cleaning materials is a way of life.Most buildings are built with stabilized mud blocks and tiled roofs or 'filler' roofs which use less concrete. Rainwater harvesting and black water recycling help minimize their water print.Locations:Asia-Bangalore-India-KarnatakaDate:5 Sep, 2017Credit:© Arjun Swaminathan / GreenpeaceMaximum size:1934px X 1933pxKeywords:Day-Ecological farming-KWCI (GPI)-Outdoors-SAGE (campaign title)-Solutions-Sustainable agriculture-Waste managementShoot:Waste to Food: Segregation of Waste and Composting in BengaluruWith the population of nearly 10 million, Bengaluru produces between 3,000 tonnes to 5,000 tonnes of garbage every day, of which around 60 percent is organic waste. The Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) claims that the city segregates nearly 50 percent of the garbage it generates.The long-term aim of the campaign is to convert our precious biodegradable waste into organic fertilisers and provide them to the farmers around the city. This will ultimately ensure that the food we consume is safer. Ensuring that our waste is separated and composted is the first step in this direction. This way the urban consumers can contribute in a significant way and be a part of the solution.
