The permaculture way of life | Manisha Latte Gupta | TEDxShivNadarUniversity

When Manisha and her husband acquired a piece of land hoping to grow clean food and harvest fresh water, little did they know that their lives would change forever, in more ways than one. They founded the Aanandaa permaculture farm as an example of working with nature to create a self-sustaining and regenerative ecosystem. They challenged the local wisdom of chemical farming and convinced their team to take a chemical-free route to building a food forest. Watch Manisha explain the details of transforming a barren piece of land into a thriving ecosystem and why she believes permaculture is the path to self-sufficiency and harmony. Manisha Lath Gupta is a permaculturist, entrepreneur and former marketer and banker. She is currently the founder of Aanandaa Permaculture Farms – where she uses the sustainable practices of permaculture to reconnect and give back to nature. She is also co-founder of, an online portal for artists, galleries and collectors of contemporary Indian art to buy, sell and exhibit their work. In her previous roles, Manisha has held key leadership positions at Uber, Clix Capital and Axis Bank. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
