Sacred Grove Community

One weekend we visited the Sacred Grove community in Auroville. It’s similar to Sadhana in it’s eco-friendly way of life that also requires seva (service) of the community members in exchange for accommodations. Sacred Grove hosted a day of art and music and we got a tour of their incredible community including the ladder hut, new dorm, recycling center, and furniture-making out of tetra packs. Super cool. 

There is an acute shortage of affordable housing in Auroville which deters many good people from joining the community… The project is designed to be a model of ecological community living using ecologically sensitive construction methods. We hope this model can be replicated in high density urban areas in India and elsewhere."
