The Trust Office is located in Natekal, Mangaluru a small town in Ullal taluk. The place naturally looks very beautiful overlooking the western Ghats on the right and Netravati river connected to the Arabian Sea on left. The sea breeze and land breeze, therefore keeps the place cool most part of the year except during summer (March to May) when the temperature and humidity will be very high, and the Sultry. The temperature of the place will be between 28.2 to 31.4 degrees centigrade with the mean temp of 25.1 degrees Centigrade. The flora and fauna are unique for the area. The rainfall in this area is about 2453 mm mainly between June to September, due to the South East monsoon and between October to December due to the North West monsoon. Mangaluru is well connected by road, rail and air transport. It also boasts of an elegant sea port.
The trust started its education institution on a 70 acre area in the year 2001, at Natekal - rural Mangaluru.. The vegetation in this place is represented by the species of western Ghats. The soil is laterite and porous and therefore water retention capacity of the soil is poor. However water retention can be done by liming the bottom of ponds with clay soil. There is a good scope for adopting rain water harvesting methods particularly roof harvesting and bore well recharging.
The trust plans to establish a biodiversity garden with different spices of plants from western Ghats. Already they have collected saplings of 1000 species of plants of western Ghats in the greenery area of the campus. Some more plant species will be introduced in the coming years. The plants will be given manure and sprinkler irrigation till plants root properly in the soil (about 4 years on average). The plants will be labelled properly with botanical names, local names with the help of scientist from Pilikula a bio university park near Vamanjoor, Mangalore. If properly maintained, this garden will attract students of botany and scientist students from universities and National Labs. Since the collection includes flowering and fruiting plants, they will attract birds and bees and small animals. Eventually the Kanachur Trust can demonstrate that the educational institutions can also contribute to ex-situ conservation of plants.
