  • Beschreibung


    We are a homestead aiming for self sufficiency. We are married partners (Madhu and Sampada) who have moved away from the hustle bustle of city life to this quite village along the western Ghats of India. We are with the help of friends and family, trying to build a permaculture farm which will be self sustainable.
    Like every other engineer in India, we have moved away from our core filed of study and worked in the sector of education for children coming from less privileged background. We are both eco conscious people and trying to be conscious consumer to our best capacity. As we explored various aspects of life, living on a farm is something that stayed with both of us and hence this project was born which we feel is nothing less than having a child and taking care of them.
    We are also conscious and thoughtful of background of people and try our best to not judge anyone. We are not religious but big fan of Kabir songs and bhajans. Madhu is a music and movie buff and can surprise you with his really awesome recommendations. We are both LGBTQ+ friendly.

    The place we have is very scenic with a flowing stream on one side and hills on the other side. Helpers can simply sit by the river and have a lovely time. The place is also very rich in biodiversity and an excellent place for bird watching, identifying butterflies and insects. You may go for a nice stroll or a jog. Travellers may also be able to visit the nearby beaches (40 kms from our place). There is also an old fort (dilapidated condition) but an excellent example of water harvesting and full of natural beauty which can also be explored.
    There are local buses available to go to the nearby town.

    We are trying to live a simple life here with as much as possible being a conscious consumer. Food available will be mostly local. We do not encourage any kind of packaged food items. Milk is rarely available. We do not have a refrigerator and drink water from a borewell or river. We do not have water filter as well.
