The INdRA Institute
A bio-recharge think tank.
Alexandria, VA, US
Director: Garee Henderson, Ph.D.


The INDRA institute is a think tank focused upon informing, guiding, and persuading legislators to consider and implement bio-recharge techniques to solve local water supply and distribution challenges.

Garee Henderson :

The institute was founded by Garee Henderson, Ph.D. in 2015 to support the non-profit INDRA  project (Interior Natural Desert Reclamation and Afforestation projects).  The institute is charged with supporting research and promoting bio-recharge techniques implemented with local legislation.

Bio-recharge is a new science comprised of  study and implementation of water-cycle management techniques. 

Bio-recharge techniques include; evaporation enhancement, deep groundwater recharge, and soil capacity management. 

Our fundamental hypothesis is that combined these techniques will help societies to achieve healthy atmospheric and groundwater ecosystems. 

The benefits of bio-recharge techniques include; minimal infrastructure, self sustaining ground and atmospheric water ecosystems, lower costs, better weather, and general improvements in the lives of millions by providing sufficient and predictable precipitation.
