Creating spaces for Biodiversity

By:Rakesh Koti

This was Naandi when we first acquired the land:

This is how it is now

Antharam, Kandawada & Damaragidda are going to turn from barren lands to biodiverse environments. The process has already started.

Biodiversity includes plants, insects, animals and more importantly, microbial life. There are a few things that must happen to achieve this

  1. Plenty of areas away from human contact (Spaces for small insects to thrive)
  2. Spaces that are not manicured (Spaces for animals to thrive)
  3. Mix of shrubs and trees (Spaces for insects to thrive)
  4. Wild native plants (Places where cross-species symbiosis happens)
  5. Places that have shadows and rocks (nooks for animals to take shelter)
  6. Compost heaps and piles of decaying organic matter (rich space for smaller animals to thrive)
  7. Water sources (frogs, toads, fish, birds)
  8. Mature trees (birds)
  9. Flowering plants (pollinators)
  10. No synthetic pesticides and concentrated chemicals (for the health of microbes in the soil)

All these spaces are created in eco-habitats to ensure biodiversity has places to thrive.
