You must be the change you want to see in the world. – Mahatma Gandhi
As part of our campaign to create Village of the Future we have acquired just acquired about 2 hectares of land in Chitwan, which we will develop into organic permaculture farm with primary focus on lemongrass, ginger, chamomile, lentil and of course bamboo. We are building upon what our team member Ramkrishna had started 10 years ago where he magically transformed his degraded land into a vibrant organic fruit farm. Based on the success of our farm, we will extend this into a community based enterprise, where we will pool marginal land of different community members and reclaim it by planting bamboo and other high value crops which will bring extra income to farmers, protect land and preserve biodiversity. We believe if the community is involved it is possible to preserve biodiversity, reclaim degraded land and make sustainable livelihood.
