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 A4A campaign fundraises for purchasing missing plots in 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 - now in danger of being lost to Auroville forever! Purchase of the many designated but still-missing plots is vital for the basic needs of unifying, consolidating, and protecting:
- The Matrimandir – the soul of Auroville – and the sanctity of its spiritual atmosphere
- The City Area and the creation of essential, coherent infrastructure & vital road access
- The Greenbelt with its resources for sustainability, green sanctuary, & models for environmental living
- The International Zone with its focus on human unity & training for peace in collective living
Collaboration works! - in just 4 years, A4A has enabled the addition of over 40 acres of formerly-missing land throughout Auroville’s Master Plan area – all thanks to your solidarity! The need is great, and the time is now! Let’s get the land the Mother envisioned for the City of Dawn! Join us in this dynamic, successful action for Auroville’s still-missing land!!

In the physical world, of all things it is Beauty that expresses the Divine best
Auroville is not just any place on the planet - it is a consecrated space for the growth of a truer consciousness. And for this, Beauty plays a central role. In the words of Sri Aurobindo, Beauty is “the special divine Manifestation in the physical, as Truth is in the mind”. He wrote: “Beauty is His footprint showing us where He has passed”.
For 50 years, starting with barren soil, Auroville has created beauty where before there was none. The Matrimandir is the recognized sign of this incarnated beauty, but it is not the only one. All over the City of Dawn is the partnership of material and spiritual life, dedicated to building the ground for a more conscious world.
Much of Auroville’s designated land – the material base for this work and beauty - is missing and at risk of being bought and used for private profit. The future of many missing plots is now up to us – which goal will they serve? Together, we can act to ensure that the missing land will serve manifesting a unified, beautiful City of Dawn!
Join us to give Auroville a special ‘50th birthday gift’ - its still-missing acres of land!
