Hi, This is tilak. I live on and off an agricultural farm that we own. We are into agriculture from past 3 generations and are still experimenting. Experimenting on integrated farming, organic farming, agri tourism etc.. The current phase keenly devoted to tourism.
Help with Eco project
The region around the farm is known for its folk stories and mysticism. I meditate, i can help travelers find the inspiration that i have found in these regions. The area is naturally beautiful and has many forests/ river fronts, caves and temples waiting to be explored.
We have a group of friends who have stationed a good 17.5 inch telescope at the farm owing thanks to the clear pollution free skies. So, we are welcome to have as much astronomy as we can.
I am looking for help to build a cycling track inside the farm with locally available materials. I hope to make a mountain biking kind of terrain along side the agricultural activities. My budget being small, i am looking to make creative use of raw materials that are available locally.
On other projects, help is needed in popularizing local folk culture. Documentation and media promotion of the folk song and stories. My village and dist. has a rich tradition of folk where generation of singers sing and narrate centuries old folk stories. The stories of great spiritual attainments and social reformations.
General farm assistance can also help
We have two rooms for staying, in one of which i will be staying and two sleeping pods are available [as shown in the picture]. As we also host other "paying guests", these rooms might also be allotted to them aswell. So, i and woerkawayers need to sometimes accommodate in tents and sleeping pods. We prefer if the workawayer has a tent, if there are more than two people. We can provide enough bedding, blankets and sheets, we do not own a tent, but have sleeping pods for two people. Separate washroom for tent and pod dwellers will be provided.
Food will be native and so as to introduce the local culture. However if our kind of food is found discomforting, something moderate will be cooked.
Hygienic exclusive washrooms will be provided for workawayers.
Will be happy to help you explore the local terrain. This is a completely rural and well settled agricultural belt of India, basin of river kaveri. There is a lot to know.
Busses are the best suited transport found here.
As described in the accommodation section, workawayers with camping equipments are preferred, and i request to be ready to switch the rooms when needed.
