Aranya Agricultural Alternatives welcomes you to the 2nd National Permaculture Convergence, the largest of its kind in the country. We are proud to host the National Permaculture Convergence -India at Aranya Permaculture Academy from March 6th to 8th 2020.
This convergence brings together a multitude of like-minded people working with diverse design perspectives around regenerative farming principles. Here, we share and learn from each other on various creative approaches around designing living environments, cultural practices and economic systems that drive us towards sustainability. Let’s make use of this opportunity to get together, network, have some fun and take away loads of learnings.
ARANYA AGRICULTURAL ALTERNATIVES (Permaculture India) is an environmental and developmental organization registered (No.1502 of 1999) under the AP (Telangana Area) Public Societies Registration Act 1350 Fasli (Act 1 f1350 F). It is facilitating and providing services to the communities, organizations, government and other national and international agencies since 1999.
“ARANYA” aims to provide alternative solutions to the present conventional and chemical agricultural practices. Since forest is the mother of agriculture, ARANYA is committed to follow the philosophy of natural agricultural practices with focus on forest farming so as to take up production without causing destruction to planet earth, enabling all life forms to coexist. ARANYA strongly believes that there is only one law i.e., Nature’s Law and human beings should not extract anything beyond their needs from the nature and also should return whatever that remains unused back to nature, a law which can be stated as LAW OF RETURNS to increase the ability of sustainable production.
Permaculture is a contraction of the two words 'PERMAnent AgriCULTURE'. It stands for responsible and wise use of natural resources, in a way that will sustain life for the present as well as future generations. It is a philosophy and practice that enables people to design and establish productive systems to provide for their food, energy, shelter and other material and non-material needs, in harmony with natural systems.

Permaculture integrates land, resources, people and the environment through mutually beneficial synergies – imitating the no waste, closed loop systems seen in nature. Permaculture studies and applies holistic solutions that are applicable in rural and urban contexts at any scale to create resilient and sustainable systems. It is a multidisciplinary toolbox including agriculture, water harvesting, renewable energy, natural building, agroforestry, waste management, animal systems, appropriate technology, economics and community development.
