At Madulkelle Tea and Eco Lodge we strongly believe in giving back to the society and the various communities we associate with.
We conduct regular community service programmes with the nearby village community to help sustain their livelihood and the education of their children. Regular donation of books for the village library and the donation of computers to provide IT training for children are couple of the initiatives undertaken by us.
At Madulkelle Tea and Eco Lodge’s organic garden, most of the fruits, vegetables and herbs needed for the kitchen are home grown. This ensures freshness of the product. The rest of the food items are outsourced from the village thereby extending a helping hand to the local community as well.
