    My Family and I are converting our farm into a food forest. Located in a small village in Chhattisghar. We want to successfully start organic food production and self sustainable lifestyle. My mom Dr.Susan is an accomplished speaker and medical & environmental activist. She specializes in studies of the human behavior and is known for her pioneering work in the field of HIV/AIDS. She later created environmental projects and started educating her listeners about reverse migration, waste management and healthy lifestyle.
    I am a singer/songwriter and audio engineer who has left the big city life to come live on my family farm for a healthier and happier lifestyle. I love to Jam on my guitar and sing so if you are a fellow musician then you are most welcome to jam along.

    Currently my super cool grandma (age 86), my mom (age 58) and I (age 32) are living on the farm along with another family of 5 who are also here to learn and about organic farming and contribute to a self sustainable lifestyle.

    3. Monitoring the water pump, filling water tanks.
    4. Help with the kitchen and harvesting food from the farm.
    5. We have teak wood, eucalyptus and bamboos. Any carpentry skills are most welcome. Need help with making simple structures and general maintenance and repairs.
