Our Initiatives & Services
go site Weekend Farming
We spend most of our weekends in our organic farm.. These 2 days, we get away from city traffic, noise, pollution, smartphones, whatsapp, internet..etc and spend time for ourselves with nature. During the weekends, we do farming, raise desi vegetable and orchard garden, harvest fresh fruits n vegetable, enjoy and live in harmony with nature. This helps us beat stress, calms mind and body, recharges us to handle the busy week ahead. We also welcome friends and like minded people to visit our farm during the weekends and spend a quality time together.
Indian Native Cattle & Backyard Poultry Farm
Initiative to raise a cattle farm with some of the Indian native cattle breeds like Kangeyam, Umbalamcherry, Allambaadi, Bargur etc.. Without these cattles any agricultural farm is incomplete.. Raising these breeds to promote A2 milk products and prepare organic manures and pest repellent.
We also raise few indigenous Indian chicken breeds in our backyard poultry farm.. Breeds include Turkey, Asil (Fighter cock) and Kadaknath (Black meat chicken) Kadaknath Chicken – Black meat chicken is entirely black including skin, eyes, blood and its meat is blackish red. Highly nutritious than other normal chicken and got medicinal value.
Community Seed Bank & Nursery for Native Seeds (No Hybrids / No GMO)
An initiative to collect, propagate and exchange indigenous and rare native varieties of vegetable & crop varieties of India. Our vision is to restore and popularize our vast diversified heirloom varieties of vegetables and crops among Indian farmers and home gardners. We started raising this nursery from some the indigenous native seeds collected from Karnataka and Tamil Nadu. We collected close to 180 rare and indigenous vegetable seed varieties in a very short span of time. We would like to thank local farmers and other like minded friends who helped us in our seed collection journey which has just began.
In January 2017, we started our first of the kind organic plant nursery to promote and propagate native vegetable saplings to farmers. We raise saplings of native varieties of Brinjal, Tomato, Red Chilli and Okra and sell it to farmers to increase the production of native vegetables in the market. Through this initiative every farmer would regain their lost seed sovereignty.
Community Seed Bank for Heirloom Seeds – Natural Green Building
This proposed Community Seed Bank project is constructed with 100% natural building materials which is locally available to preserve and propagate native (Heirloom) seeds of India. we would be using our traditional indigenous techniques and methods to preserve these seeds. Through this project we would like to propagate our native seeds to farmers and home gardeners. Create awareness about native seeds, rich biodiversity of India and about breathable green buildings to students, farmers and consumers.
Thanks to Thannal Hand Sculpted Homes, Thiruvanamalai for en-lighting us with the knowledge on natural cob buildings.
