Greetings! By profession I am a Network Architect. By passion, a musician and an organic farmer.
I cultivate an eco farm surrounded by canopy trees. This is a peaceful environment away from civilization, about 25 minutes walk. The nearest village is 2 kms away and the whole lot is friendly to me. You being my guest, can walk to anyone's house for a coffee and you will be welcomed just as they treat me.
I stay in the farm on and off due to nature of my profession, it's better if you are a couple so that it doesn't get lonely when I am not there. There will be one person who would attend to the farm from 8am to 6pm who can help for food when I am not around, or you can use our kitchen if you wish to.
The farm is cultivated with Avocados, jackfruit, native bananas, guavas, passion fruits and with space to add vegetable crops.
Help with Eco Projects

Help around the house
Organic farming, observation of Flora, fauna and natural habitat in the region, interaction with the hill people and tribes around the locality.
As well, exposure to cook native recipes and growing own vegetables for consumption.
Every now and then one can escape to Kodaikanal town which is a major tourist attraction, filled with lots of events.
Nearby village, Thandikudi is a heritage site, for those who would like to explore archaeological remains.
This is a great place for those who are interested in organic farming, landscaping and eco-sustainable living.
Help is required to restructure certain parts of the farm, build a live fence and an irrigation system. Tasks would range from weeding, watering, planting,- we are adding few more fruit varieties i.e. pineapple, oranges, strawberries.
In the near future I will be setting up a mini bio-compost plant and a polyhouse. Any help or skill transfer would be highly desired.
Two Rooms with attached washroom, minimum furnished.
Tents can be made available if one desires to camp in the farm.
Common kitchen and hall, with RO water for drinking and cooking.
There is no Television.
This is situated mid hills, on the way to Kodaikanal, a popular and a busy tourist town.
10kms from this place is an heritage site with rich archaeological elements.
