Calling friends of Gaia Grid!

With your massive support so far, we have been able to

1. Finish working on a small shelter on the land
2. Create contour bunds totalling more than 500 metres
3. Create water catchment ponds that can hold more than 2,00,000 litres of water, but more importantly help recharge the ground water
4. Start planting trees
5. Host participants who help with the conservation efforts 

Additionally, your contributions have also facilitated the day to day operation of the project for which we are immensely thankful!!
These small steps help us physically realise the dream of a self-sustainable future. 

We are creating this page to facilitate continued fundraising for Gaia Grid so that our work may go on and enable more individuals to contribute their time and energy to conservation work.

If you or anyone you know believes in the work we are doing and would like to contribute, we would be thrilled! 

Your contributions continue to enable us in managing our day to day work and slowly but surely help grow Gaia Grid.

Goes without saying that we continue to share regular stories and updates from the land!

Lots of love! 

Since we started in November 2016, we've constantly hosted participants and worked one step at a time toward our goal of self-sustainable living. We've received the unconditional love and support of super generous souls and that support has enabled us to carry on with our work. Here we share some pictures from the land that will give you an idea of how it looks now, after 6 months of work. We’ve already started bringing back a lot of rainwater to the ground and restore the green cover. In addition, we’ve planted numerous trees and have established a vegetable garden. We finished construction of a tool room, which for now doubles up as a shelter. In the coming months, we would continue working on the conservation work and funds permitting, excavate a bore well to enable us to have permanent supply of water. Our catchment ponds and water conservation structures would continue recharging the local aquifer. We are also on our way to be power efficient with the installation of our first solar panel that’ll be used to light the farm and will also enable us to charge phones and laptops when required. To continue supporting us, please consider making a financial contribution and visiting us on the farm! We hope you enjoy the pictures and we would love to hear from you!!
