IIHS Composting Initiatives

Dr. Sultan Ismail, a leading soil biologist and ecologist who pioneered earthworm and vermitech (composting technique) research in India, helped set up the composting unit by providing a workshop at the IIHS guest house for staff and students. Dr. Ismail is also an advisor on the 55-acre upcoming University campus in Kengeri, Bengaluru.

Further Steps

The set up will be expanded gradually in future as more spaces are converted to raised bed vegetable gardens with a vision to create a closed loop circular economy sort of model for urban gardening and food production.
