Analog Forest

‘Thuruwadula’ 9.7-acre land that lies within the limit of MAS Fabric Park is the first analog forest to be implemented & owned by a non-government company. The core intention of this project is to restore a degraded ecosystem & inspire the community to adapt to climate change. This is designed as a replicable model to educate visitors.

Analog forestry is a system of land management that combines the values of local forest biodiversity with organic crop cultivation. It seeks to establish a forest type environment, analogous in architectural structure and ecological function to the original forest ecosystems that once existed in the area. It also seeks to strengthen rural communities, socially as much as economically, using species that provide for food as well as providing marketable products that sustain rural communities.
