The Auroville Botanical Gardens was started in 2000 on 50 acres of dry grassland. Since then a dedicated crew of Aurovilians, volunteers and paid workers have transformed the land into a young forest, an arboretum, nursery, and multiple small focus gardens. The Botanical Garden was established in response to the disappearing Tropical Dry Evergreen Forest (TDEF) native to Auroville, and to the global need for the conservation of genetic diversity in the plant kingdom in a wide range of climatic conditions. Education and raising environmental awareness is another of our principal missions to serve the young generation of our closest neighbors in the villages around Auroville.
