“If it came from a plant, eat it; if it was made in a plant, don’t”.
― Michael Pollan

What is the CSACL membership?
CSACL is a membership of The Farm by Protecterra born out of a need to create long term engagement with Terra. The main aim of the membership is to give urban people an opportunity to work with soil, plants and animals. The engagement allows for addressing the nature deficit disorder that we are all faced with.
Where is CSACL?
The Farm by Protecterra is a place for Love, Awareness and Learning. A love for the self and for the Earth, an awareness of our surroundings and our self and a learning from the animals and from the Earth herself.
Spread over 2 acres and adjoined by forest land, The Farm is a green escape from the noise and madness of city life. Built completely in continuation with the natural terrain, 80% of the space has been made from scrap and waste and with minimal concrete. We are home to over 1,800 trees, over 62 species of birds, several butterflies, creepy crawlies and even the visiting langurs, spotted deer and wild boar. We also have nearly 40 resident animals (dogs, cats, goats).
Location: The Farm by Protecterra, NDA Road (Chandni Chowk), Pune
