ACRES FOR AUROVILLE is dedicated to raising funds to purchase urgently-needed land for completing and consolidating Auroville’s material base. A collaboration of Auroville International & Lands for Auroville Unified (LFAU) in coordination with Auroville’s Land Board, the campaign fundraises for priority plots within all of the Master Plan area – the City Area, the Greenbelt, and the Peace Area that encircles and protects the Matrimandir. The boom in land speculation makes each unsecured acre a target in danger of being lost to Auroville forever! The need is great, and the time is now! Let’s get the land the Mother envisioned for the City of Dawn! Join the A4A action!! More campaign & donor information: www.colaap.org

15 August 2016 - Acres for Auroville Flier
‘To build a house in Matter for the Unborn’
Auroville began with Sri Aurobindo’s great vision, the Mother’s dream, and with land! The earth of 124 nations and regions of India, and the Samadhi of Sri Aurobindo, were put together into the urn along with the Auroville Charter. Auroville was born in a concrete act of intention, hope, and new promise!
For the Mother, Matter was the vital substance in which she placed her force - Matter was the vector through which she acted. And Auroville’s land was the house she intended for the new Force and Consciousness so ‘that Heaven might native grow on mortal soil’.
Today, the land that the Mother intended for this ‘house’ is still incomplete. In line with this urgent need, starting on August 15th - A4A Phase 3 will aim larger and higher to target The City & Priority Plots in all of Auroville’s Master Plan area.
The Mother wrote: “our present individual beings are in reality called upon to collaborate in this glorious victory, this new manifestation.” And for Auroville’s land, the Mother asked: “Will you help?”
The clock is ticking - the time to secure the land is NOW!
