Permaculture: Activists create forest, harvest vegetables at Bengaluru’s Jakkur lake

Bengaluru: The 160 acres area of Jakkur lake in Bengaluru and its wetland and tank bed that were seen as a litter spot is now a place that has a serene water body, attracts migratory birds. Now, it has a forest garden, water garden, vegetable garden and all the aspects that are covered under permaculture (conscious design and maintenance of agriculturally productive ecosystems which have the diversity, stability, and resilience of natural ecosystems).

Jalaposhan, an NGO that has been working with the local community and multiple stakeholders in the Karnataka government with regard to Jakkur lake since 2014, now has tied up with ANANAS, an organisation engaged in ecological landscape design, is working in educating and making a community garden.

According to Annapurna Kamath, a trustee of Jalaposhan, with the help of volunteers, forest garden, a community garden that is of low maintenance is being made. This idea is to make the local community and walkers display ownership towards the lake habitat.
