I have a farmhouse bang in the middle of an apple orchards in the Himalayas (85kms from Shimla).
It is an eco-home built for travellers who love nature, are eco-conscious, who love animals and organic produce.
We have over 5 cats, one mountain dog, two sheep and a brood of chicken.
We regularly conduct eco-campaigns from our farmhouse which include forest tree-plantation , plastic picking campaigns, prevention of forest fire campaigns among others. We are always looking for eco-conscious travellers to join us in our campaigns. All our campaigns are self-funded and are followed by seminars where we invite imminent environmentalists for a talk on climate change, water-harvesting and on forests.
This November 2019 onwards, we would we embarking on our Permaculture campaign for which we would love to have volunteers join us in building an organic farm producing, apples, pears, apricots, cherries and a host of vegetables. The guests can stay in our farmhouse known for its local aesthetic apple, its warm hill hospitality and the surrounding beauty. Welcome all.
