 ‘Celebrating Nature & Community’

It’s a glorious season at Vanvadi – a lush, collectively regenerated forest with brimming water bodies and flowing streams – in the Sahyadri foothills, 95 km from Mumbai.

Our Vanutsav – in this womb of pristine Nature – is a multigenerational, self-organized, open agenda gathering for resparking our spirits to fresh, new dawns! Besides workshops, activities, discussions – offered by participants – there is much informal sharing. An early dinner is generally followed by singing, music, dance around a wood-fire in our forest circle.

  2. For 2-3 days: Rs 1200 per person per day; Rs 800 for children below 12
