Noushadya and I are a couple running an organic farm for the last 1.5 years near Papanasam, Tirunelveli. We quit our corporate jobs a couple of years back and we wanted to lead a healthy, sustainable life. And here we are doing just that! :)
Cooking / shopping
Help with Eco project
Papanasam has a tiger reserve, waterfall, river and a temple. So it is quite a touristy spot.
Noushadya and I have learnt a lot of techniques that can make life at the farm & home easier for beginners to lead a sustainable life. We would love to share this knowledge with you. Noushadya loves to cook and I love to play music. So lots of fun times to be had :)
We are going to be focusing on soil health building and vegetable cultivation the next 2 months. The monsoon is here and the clayey soil is in a workable condition now in most places. So, Volunteers and we will plant a lot of green manure trees around the farm which we will later chop & drop to improve organic matter in the soil. Volunteers will also learn to prepare Compost piles and Jeevamrutham, which are used to accelerate the process of decomposition.
For vegetable cultivation, we want to prepare raised beds with fertile soil and manure. We have all the raw material we need at the farm itself. Volunteers will need to plan layout and measure and move everything into place.

Stay with us at a house that we have rented at a town close by, Vikramasingapuram. VK Puram is 3 kms away from the farm. We have space to accommodate 2 people right now at any given time. Cycle or walk to the farm from home is easy if it isn't raining heavily.
Reaching here is easy by bus or train or a combination of both. Local bus transport is fairly frequent and convenient.
We love to spend time with like minded people who want to create an impact on this planet. We care about ecosystems around us and all our decisions are now starting to get aligned to protecting them.
