Finally, any new development must involve the local community, which has been part of the neighbourhood long before the new members. Creating employment, encouraging local farmers by purchasing their produce, integrating the local community in the use of public spaces, cultural events, will benefit not only the local community, but also impart a more balanced sense of community for our children. Small scale enterprises, playschool, child care, health care, tailoring, food and such support functions for the community must be encouraged from the members of the community, as also farming, and cultural activities. These spaces will only form a canvas on which community life can be crafted; the rest needs the collective motivation, skill and will of the community to meet the many challenges to make Good Earth Malhar a model of development for the future.
Good Earth Malhar is located off Mysore Road in Kengeri, Bangalore.
