Marc Granen (http://marcgranen.net/) specializes in the concept of Phyto-Kinetics, the way of creating moving gardens! How would gardens move, you might ask. He shared his knowledge of doing this with the Coimbatore Isha Vidhya students recently!
In Isha Vidhya's "Profession with Passion" series talks, Marc presented the details of his work. It was titled "A glimpse into the life of an artistic and innovative Gardener". He was accompanied by Shanmugasundaram and Supriya of Milltex Engineers Ltd., who had introduced Marc to Isha Vidhya.
Marc shares in his own words about his experience of his visit to the Isha Vidhya school :
"Last Thursday I felt really such a lucky man. With Milltex Engineers Private. Ltd., we visited the Isha Vidhya school, not far from Coimbatore. I went there to share my Phyto-Kinetic project's thoughts and so all my experience on #greenwalls projects around the world. But for sure I received much more than I gave. Since the first moment I got absolutely engaged to the intense good vibrations coming from every single person there; from the kind director, to the youngest student, all of them had that inner harmony we the rest of mortals try to reach somewhere.
In this #school, tradition, #yoga, #education and technologies live together in absolute harmony, bringing to children the right wisdom and knowledge to effort the future. I strongly wished to have the future chance, one day, to work and learn with one (or some) of them! This project is making a tremendous work there. I just wish one day we can share a common green project; that would be the best present!
Thank you so much, Peggy Wolf and all the staff, students and personnel, for that wonderful morning. Again, thank you so much, Manikandan, Supriya and Mothilal, for trusting me and gave me the opportunity to learn and share!"
Inspired and motivated by Marc's presentation and sharing, the Coimbatore Isha Vidhya students are thinking of creating green walls on their school buses! Wouldn't that be awesome? And that's how dear patrons, the gardens will move!

HSBC corporate employee volunteering program happened the second time in September, supporting Isha Vidhya!
The employees started their volunteering day with a breakfast in their office canteen. Isha Vidhya project was then introduced to them, which was followed by a speech by Stuart P Milne, GGM & CEO, HSBC India. His speech and presence was a great inspiration and support to the volunteers as well as Isha Vidhya.
60 volunteers, employees and some with their families participated in the full day event. The following learning material were hand-created by the volunteers :
1900 speed reading charts 100 rhyming words cards 420 geometrical shapes 500 worksheets 20 story books 60 charts
The day was full of laughter and enthusiasm. Spending time together for a worthy cause brought employees together.
