Ankuram - The Experiential Farm

An initiative of Karma Lakelands and Indian School of Hospitality

Indian School of Hospitality partners with Karma Lakelands for an experiential farm at their golf resort in Gurugram. The students will be initiated into organic farming, beekeeping and other eco-friendly initiatives of sustainability and conscious living — a vision shared by the founders of Indian School of Hospitality and Karma Lakelands.

Teaching ‘farm-to-table’ concepts and more!

The idea for the farm came when École Ducasse-ISH sought additional locations to fulfil demands for herbs and organic produce in their kitchens. The farmland shall feature seasonal ingredients and regional plants that account for most of the ingredients used on campus. It will encourage farm-to-table practices, sustainable sourcing, and relying on locally-grown crops. Additionally, students shall participate in practical learning sessions in the open classroom and the rustic kitchen. They will also be guided by an expert on organic and sustainable farming at Karma Lakelands.

Learning about the ecology of food with a hyperlocal focus on environmentally-minded culinary operations

“Indian School of Hospitality has always adapted its teaching philosophies to meet the needs of the ever-changing culinary and hospitality industry. As interest in learning about the origin of food increases, we have responded by offering students opportunities to harvest agriculture responsibly. It will allow us to incorporate sustainable approaches into the culinary coursework, like the Bachelor’s programme that features classes on food policy, ecology of food and farm-to-table concepts. This way, students will be encouraged to develop mindsets towards sustainability and eco-friendly farming.”
~ Mr Dilip Puri, Founder & CEO, Indian School of Hospitality
