Few people realize the enormity of the work of Auroville’s Land Board. A small team of Aurovilians has the mandate for leading, organizing, and managing all of Auroville’s land protection and land purchase actions, supported by several teams working in various areas. In recognition of this immense responsibility, we are dedicating a series of articles to their work. In this first installment, we focus on what the Land Board’s mandate involves, as well as the considerable achievements made in the past 3 years.
Since our last announcement, Auroville has added 19.09 new consolidating acres in five Greenbelt areas, all funded by your donations! We thank all you donors who made these purchases possible and congratulate the Land Board for these achievements. Our sincere appreciation goes to the land owners whose goodwill made these purchases happen in such a harmonious spirit. May we continue to manifest together the City of Dawn!
Renu was one of the first Auroville children, arriving when she was just a year and a half. A small child, she was present for the 1968 Inauguration and for the consecration of the Matrimandir. Today, she continues to work building Auroville, holding it as close as possible to the exciting vision she grew up with of something new and great. With her parents and her two children, they now make three Auroville generations.
