  • Description

    Description

    My name is Hasan. I am developing my 16 acre farmland (which is in 3 pieces 2 km apart) into a community farm/ an eco-village by creating basic facilities, planting and nurturing different tree species.
    I left my job as an agricultural officer, to become a full-time farmer. I am living with my mom who is 75.

    My farm is in Belgal and Iddalgi villages. These villages lie between Bijapur (Vijayapur) which is famous for Gol-gumbaz, and, Hampi, famous for ruins of Vijayanagar Empire. Aihole, Pattadakal, Badami, Kudal Sangam, Almatti dam are very close to my place.
