    Description

    A Permaculture Food Forest. We are aiming at turning a Monoculture Farm into an entirely RainFed Food Forest. The Farm is about 9 acres with a Coconut & Mango Plantation filled with 20 different varieties of fruits and other species. We have started to convert this land into a plot that grows more than a 100 different varieties of fruits and other beneficial species.Vegetable patches also focus on inter cropping to reduce the need for pest management. Volunteers at our farm also have the opportunity to become a part of our professional Permaculture and/or Aquaponics Design Practice after necessary training and experience.
