Aviram Rozin, co-founder of the off-the-grid vegan community Sadhana Forest in Auroville, South India, will give an informal talk followed by a question and answer session at Matagiri in Mount Tremper on Sunday October 22nd at 2 pm.
Along with his wife, Yorit, Aviram has founded satellite communities in Haiti and Kenya focusing on food forests and done pioneering research in growing trees which provide both food and carbon sequestration. He has trained thousands in innovative techniques for conserving water and growing saplings.
Sadhana Forest incorporates many of the best practices in ecological living including composting toilets, rocket stoves and permaculture. Aviram has also traveled extensively in India consulting with those looking to apply his knowledge of afforestation and water conservation. He has recently been appointed to the Global Restoration Initiative serving with a number of other prominent environmentalists.
Aviram’s work has been featured in the New York Times, Christian Science Monitor and numerous publications in India.
