Bees are known to be the best pollinators on the planet and our bee farming initiative improves the health of the crops and plants life at Karma Lakelands. We also produce and package fresh organic honey which is tastier and healthier than mass-produced products. We invite you to try Karma Honey which is replete with enzymes and nutrients that boost immunity and helps fight local allergies.
Organic Agro Initiatives
To promote organic living, Karma Lakelands has set up a nursery to nurture plants, herbs and vegetables for organic produce. Our nursery at Karma is home to many varieties of plants, seasonal flowers and trees before being planted on the campus. Residents and guests can also take a tour of the nursery and learn about horticulture.
All kitchen waste from the Klub, daycare, chalets and villas is sorted on-site and recycled to feed our farm animals, or is used for making organic compost. We also collect all plastic waste which is sent for recycling. The e-waste is processed in collaboration with Earth Sense Pvt. Ltd., where we collect and accept electronic materials like old TVs, computers, battery cells, etc.
Karma Day Care
Karma Day Care is operated by the NGO - Sanskriti Sourabh. It is home for the children of our staff members and children from surrounding areas. Their education, clothing, food and day care are looked after by committed members and volunteers. Residents and visitors/guests often sponsor meals on their special days, and even fund the education of the children.
Our compost which is used for soil enrichment, is a collection of plant clippings/prunings mixed with cow dung and sewage. The partnership of this biomass with sewage scuttles the smell and doesn’t attract flies or mosquitos. We also actively vermicompost - using various species of worms to make compost.
Water Harvesting & Conservation
To promote sustainable living, rain water at Karma Lakelands is channelled and harvested for irrigation. As an initiative to avoid the needless wastage of water, we encourage guests to bring in their own towels to the pool/gym. However, guests may use the Klub towels that are available if they need to.
Sewage Treatment Plant
Golf courses are known to be guzzlers of water, so one can only imagine what a golf resort spanning 300 acres would do to the groundwater table. Hence, Karma Lakelands has a dedicated Sewage Treatment Plant (STP) with the capacity to treat 500,000 litres of sewage daily. The sewage is piped from National Security Guards (NSG) campus next door, Klub Karma, Villas, Chalets and surrounding areas of the resort. Treated water is nutrient-rich and used for irrigation and horticulture of the entire resort.
An eco-brick is a plastic bottle packed to a specific density with used, clean and dry plastic to achieve a building block that can be used over and over again. We are collecting as many eco-bricks as possible which will be used at Karma Lakelands to create installations, pathways, staircases, etc, or they are passed on for road making in the future.
Say No To Plastic
At Karma Lakelands, we try and say NO to all kinds of plastic. To support the initiative, we offer glass bottles for water instead of plastic. We do not believe in making money by selling water and hence provide complimentary glass bottles to be returned when the guests are leaving the Klub. We also discourage the use of straws but provide paper straws upon request.
Low Carbon Footprint
Karma Lakelands strives to leave a low carbon footprint. We have planted over 2,00,000 trees and plants, and use only solar water heating. The trees and plants facilitate a natural shelter for birds and animals, along with providing fresh air.
No Horn Policy
Karma Lakelands has a strict “No Horn” policy. Our guards respond to sight and not sound, and it helps us to retain the beautiful sounds of nature for you.
Our entire resort is solar energy enabled which not only provides electricity during the day but also provides shade for our Klub visitors’ cars.
