An outstanding example of dedicated effort at using natures forces to enable man to live in harmony with her landscape. Mud stabilised blocks are energy efficient. SBT is low energy sewage treatment. All examples to be scaled up to enable India’s progress to be environmentally sustainable. Request to team with Forest Departtment to adopt Galtare/Nane villages to promote regeneration of forest and sustainable forest. I feel privileged.
Amazing experience visiting here. Its a beautiful place built with a vision. I am sure in near future it is going to be a major landmark of our country.
Our team from Bajaj Electricals visited GEV with the intent to contribute by planting trees and we returned with the gifts of learning how to remain humble, provide selfless service, contribute back to the environment. This interdependence needs to be cherished and celebrated. May we continue to partner with GEV for creating an enriching and sustainable society.
A short but educative, heart warming, mind expanding, soul-electrifying, body relaxing stay. The thought for food and food for thought were supreme. Every activity in the ecovillage extended success and serenity. In a increasing material world this is an oasis of right action through right direction. The future of India, World and humanity rests on the shoulders of such a place.
From the moment I entered the grounds I was embraced by a sense of peace and welcome. A scientist at heart I was engaged by the recycling and the manner in which the cows and community work together. A sacred place. Thank you for the blessing.
This is really heaven on earth. Such dedication to convert vision into reality is rarely seen. No doubt this will be a beacon of spiritual life for all of us. May the Lord continue to inspire you to evolve this place into a magical ‘Light House’.
