Bharat Mansata is a writer-editor and environmental activist, particularly involved in environmental regeneration and organic farming.
He has authored: (1) The Great Agricultural Challenge, and (2) Organic Revolution, both published by Earthcare Books (3) Pregnant with Poison (4) The Vision of Natural Farming; and have also edited ‘Ecological Vision’, published by Development Research Communication and Services Centre (www.drcsc.com)
For the past 15 years, he has been closely associated with a collective ‘forest-farm’, Vision Acres (Van Vadi), which has grown into a rich forest – dense, tall and high in biodiversity. (It is now one of the best forest patches between Matheran and Bhimashankar in the foothills of the Sahyadris, and a source of joy and inspiration to visitors.) Rainwater harvesting and organic farming there too has been quite successful, as also initiatives in non-formal environmental/Nature learning.
