As a boy, Dr. L. Narayana Reddy ran away from his parent’s home and lived and worked for years in cities. After he inherited a small piece of land in 1972, just outside bangalore, he decided to start farming. After Mr. Reddy received some magazines on organic farming in 1975 from a friend, he started to convert his farm to ecological agriculture.
Today Dr. Reddy is a legendary organic farmer and is one of the most sought after resource on ecological agriculture. He has set up a centre in Doddabalapur, near Bangalore, for experiential learning of organic farming. He now is an active promoter of organic bio-diverse farming at various Indian & international forums.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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’.
