  • Description

    Description

    I've bought a piece of farmland (5 acres) in Balaghat district, Madhya Pradesh. The land is more of a forest and less of a farmland, with an abundance of ber (indian plum), mahua and sagwan (teak) trees.
    I plan to retain the essential character of the land intact while also farming, which will be in sync with nature.
    Currently, I'm in the middle of building a mud house, and have completed a part of it with the help of my adivasi friends from Bastar, Chhattisgarh.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Travellers can learn building cob house, farming, camping, cooking indian food and brewing rice beer.
    You can also indulge in collecting mahua flowers, swimming in Dev river on the land or find peace by the small waterfall. And if you're lucky, you may even spot a deer or two or a tree full of fireflies during sunset.
