PHONES: +91 9980111998 or +917598278793 (9:30 am to 5:30 Pm) 'Open Shell' is a Permaculture demonstration site of swaYYam, set in a picturesque location at the foothills of the Nilagiris, 5.5 hours from Bangalore and 2 hours from Mysore. Open Shell today is bustling with over 4000 local, drought tolerant tree saplings and over 400 species of mixed forest, timber, fruit, medicinal and fibre trees, shrubs and bushes. 4 years ago what was a denuded, sub soil exposed, overgrazed land, today, is abound with multitude of species of birds, insects, butterflies, reptiles with peacocks and wild hare as our regular visitors and occasional sightings of elephants and wild boars outside the site. Permaculture and regenerative principles were applied over these years to the land to conserve water and soil and regenerate the ecosystem. Today, about 70% of our food needs come from this land and we’re still ‘learning by doing’….
swaYYam is registered as a trust under the Government of India. It is a not for profit organisation and the proceeds from these events, after meeting costs, go towards our community based ecological regeneration and the 1000-tree project in the Village. Any additional contributions will be very much appreciated.
In this 3-day residential workshop you will learn from our experiences the principles and concepts as well as various strategies and tools of Permaculture to get you started on your journey.
