We Renata and Sridhar, Polish Indian couple living a slow life with our three kids in the flat lands of Tamil Nadu, India. In 2019 we moved from London to our 8 acre farm in India. We are converting the barren land into a food forest and a eco friendly farm stay. So far we have created a rain water harvest pond, food forest, kitchen garden and cow shelter.
Currently we are homeschooling our kids and building our first mud house made of cob. We are working towards becoming self sufficient and reduce using money. We are not a commercial farm and want to move away from using money (that is the ultimate goal)
