Our Project

Celebrating Beauty and Diversity

Here at the Auroville Botanical Gardens we are working to create a place that celebrates the beauty and diversity of nature. The plant world is amazing in its beauty, its adaptations to varying environments and in the way it provides our society with many of our needs.

Importance of the Environment

Once we understand the importance of the environment to our society only then we will work together, more energetically, towards the creation of a sustainable future both for ourselves and the planet.

Relationship with the Natural World

Here at the gardens we hope to create and nurture relationships between our human society and the natural world. It is our aspiration that the work we do here will help lead people in this direction.
