The Timbaktu Collective
In a drought-prone area in Andhra Pradesh, Southern India, the Timbaktu Collective is regenerating the land, bringing back wildlife, and restructuring the social systems for the people living and working in the area. Katie went to stay with the group, but wasn't expecting to find a huge new factory being built.
Katie knew the regenerated landscape would be impressive, but what surprised her was an inspiring example of social regeneration in the form of women's cooperatives.
