Gerardo

Bhoomi College is committed to joining the younger generation to co-create meaningful and empowering learning environments to address challenges in both education and sustainable living. Bhoomi believes in supporting learning for different kinds of people – hands-on, interactive and collaborative, intellectually rigorous, project based, self-initiated and more… As Einstein said, “We cannot solve a problem with the same thinking that created it”. To live harmoniously with Nature and all human communities, we need new ways of learning for the body, mind and soul. Join us for a new kind of journey – to discover new possibilities, new co-travellers and new ways of pereceiving our world. About the College Bhoomi College has brought together individuals and communities through its Post Graduate courses, weekend programmes, conferences and workshops to learn, share and engage, aiming at ecological living on our planet. The focus of all the courses offered is on participative learning that is deep, holistic and practical. Our programmes attempt to make learning engaging and enjoyable through hands-on work, group discussions, reflection and field trips. The well-designed curriculum and Interactions with inspiring thinkers and doers help make the courses meaningful and often transformative. About the Bhoomi Campus The Bhoomi Campus is a beautiful space spread over 4 acres, with an organic garden to provide most of the vegetables used here. It has been designed as a space for learning through living as a community . Students, faculty and guests are invited to join in the activities in the garden and kitchen at least for an hour every day . 90% of the energy used for lighting, fans etc is from the Sun. Composting, using organic soaps and cleaning materials is a way of life. Most buildings are built with stabilized mud blocks and tiled roofs or ‘filler’ roofs which use less concrete. Rainwater harvesting and black water recycling help minimize our water print.
