The Aranya Agriculture Alternatives (AAA), Hyderabad, an NGO working on promotion of permaculture, will host the three-day national permaculture convergence (NPC), 2016 between February 5 and 7 at the University auditorium of Professor Jayashankar Telangana Agriculture University, Hyderabad. Participants include eminent agriculture and environmental scientists with the keynote address to be delivered by renowned seed activist and conservationist, Dr. Vandana Shiva.

Productive systems

AAA secretary Narsanna Koppula said that permaculture is a philosophy and practice which helps people to design and establish productive systems to provide for their food, energy, shelter and other material and non material needs in harmony with nature. It is more relevant to India given the declining water resources, soil health and bio diversity.
