Solitude is one of the farms in Auroville’s green belt.  Their produce goes to Pour Tous, AV’s grocery store, and they also offer an organic lunch right there at the farm every day.

Solitude grows these red flowers called rosella- they taste like tart raspberries- to make rosella jam, or tea.

 Besides selling the food that they grow, the people who live at Solitude also offer the organic lunch (which has no set price- you make a donation), and some make clothing to sell to visitors.

They also get help from volunteers who stay in these little huts and work on the farm.  The resident’s houses are much nicer, though still simple.  The one I went in was made out of hardened mud that was painted turquoise, and felt like concrete to the touch.  Beams of dark wood ran through the hardened earth as a shell for support.
