  • Description

    Description

    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.

    Rain water harvesting, solar power, pesticide free environment are the highlights here.

    The farm is cultivated with Avocados, jackfruit, native bananas, guavas, passion fruits and with space to add vegetable crops.

  • Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    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.

    Help

    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.
