The centre for sustainable living alternatives

Hosa Jeevana Daari a distinct centre was set up by the Trust in 1980. Hosa Jeevavana Daari means ‘a way to new life’ in kannada. The broad concept of the centre is to create a place, which is in complete harmony with nature, and inspire people who are in search of non-violent sustainable living alternatives. A barren piece of land three decades ago is now full of trees and birds. The rainwater harvesting, organic farming are part of the centre’s ecological initiatives. The simple structures seamlessly blend with the landscape and enhance ambience of the centre.
