While the rest of the world is busy on a count down of extinct species, these people took it upon them to heal the forest and all its beings back to their natural state. With dedication and reverence, over the last thirty years!
Suprabha Seshan is ecologist and educator who lives and works at the Gurukula Botanical Sanctuary (GBS), a forest garden in the Western Ghat mountains of Kerala, India, dedicated to the preservation of plant species, restoration ecology and environmental education. But apart from the credentials, something else is going on here. We are seeing a community of people at work who are truly an integral part of ‘Nature’, embrace her ‘Spirit’ and understand her ‘Rhythms’.
It makes me think: We are a long way from ‘Home’.
