Hello workawayres, my name is Yogesh. Me and my family are looking for exchange of cultures and knowledge of any kind. Whatever you can do, we are curious to learn from you.
What we can offer in exchange:
Our farm land of 2.5acre is situated 80 km from Pune.
It is a natural dynamic organic farm, growing lots of different fruits like Banana and Papaya, different crops, lentils, sugarcane and much more. We work on soil improvement using biodiversity. preparing vermicompost, bioenzyme natural pest repellent, milk product's .
Have you ever tried milk that you have been milking with your own hands?
WE are a joint family of 10 members including kids, living very basic .
Our home is built with stone, mud and wood. We still work on it, so you can also get an insight in ecofriendly building. Furthermore, the nearby village has very old traditional construction called "wada".
