MARU - desert VAN - forest
Maruvan is a project that was established in 2018 in a small village 25km outside Jodhpur with the goal of promoting sustainability and preserving the local environment. We were founded with the support of Afforestt, a renowned organization dedicated to revitalizing native forests through the use of the Miyawaki method.
As part of our mission, we are actively working to collect and preserve native wild tree seeds, with the ultimate goal of establishing a functional seed bank that can be used to support reforestation efforts in the region. In addition to this, we are collaborating with local communities and village elders to create traditional water harvesting structures, as well as natural habitats that can be enjoyed by both humans and local wildlife.
At Maruvan, we believe in the importance of sharing knowledge and resources, and as such, we are committed to making all of our processes and efforts fully transparent and available on open source platforms. We also regularly host a variety of hands-on workshops and training sessions, inviting people from all walks of life to learn from our team and become more active participants in the work we are doing. Our ultimate goal is to create a more sustainable and harmonious relationship between humans and the natural world.
