A great project reaching out with Auroville`s green expertise is
"Be the change" - is a new program in horticulture
a 6 month training program in Horticulture organised by the Auroville Botanical Gardens.
Several Aurovilians and collaborators from the region bring in their expertise, as the training goes into all aspects of plant biology and ecosystems and places an emphasis on practical hands-on experiences. Participants will also gain knowledge through site visits, ranging from Eco-restoration projects around Auroville and ecosystems in different sites in Tamil Nadu.
The participants in the Ecological Horticulture Course are to create a new generation of professionals who are competent to lead teams in the field engaged in practical work. The participants may expect to find employment as project managers for Eco-restoration and conservation projects; as supervisors in commercial landscaping companies and horticultural departments, or be ready to set themselves up as independent businesses in the world of conservation.
The lecturers have many years of experience in the fields of horticulture, landscaping, forestry, biology and project management, as well as a deep concern for the conservation and restoration of natural habitats. Their aim is to impart the knowledge and experience that they have gained throughout a lifetime of working on the land.
The participants will gain knowledge on plant maintenance, propagation and composting techniques; the proper care and use of tools and machinery; as well as landscaping, report writing, nursery management and fundamentals of Eco-restoration and afforestation. Certification is given at the end of the 6-months course.
