The Global Ecovillage Network (GEN) Auroville desk based in Pitchandikulam Forest has just successfully hosted a 5 week Ecovillage Design Education Course running from 4th December 2016 to 7th January 2017!
The triangular watershed stretches from 10 km North West of Tindivanam to Marakkanam to the Auroville plateau, and covers an area of 740 sq. km. or 25,000 ha. During the monsoons runoff water reaches the Kaliveli floodplain (which is the lowest point within the watershed) via an intricate network of tanks and channels.
