The farm that houses the Project has been consciously cultivated on the principles of natural farming and regenerative agricultural practices since 2013. Though primarily an apple orchard, the farm has been carefully structured into growing a variety of fruits, vegetables and herbs, so as to enable the Project to be self sustainable. From creating rain water harvesting systems, grey water treatment facility and recharge pits to using various kinds of composting methods and materials there has been an earnest attempt to create a sustainable eco-system.
The Shilaroo Project is a family run holistic residency in Himachal that primarily offers workshops on the ancient practices of yoga and pottery by a team of trained and experienced teachers (Read more about the teacher’s on The Team page). These workshops are conducted in Yogavastha, the yoga studio and Gaara, the pottery studio which are fully-equipped along with panoramic views of the Churdhar range. To facilitate a comprehensive experience, the Project provides restful accommodations ranging from private rooms to dormitory options as well as, wholesome and nutritious farm-fresh vegetarian meals.
Surrounded by the stillness of the Himalayas, The Shilaroo Project is shaped as an elemental space with an aim to develop a community system of dynamic people and practices focusing on the ideas of sustainability, productivity and above all a keen sense of awareness of self and our surroundings.
