    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Ours is a purely vegetable,fruit garden and this would be a great learning experience for you if you are looking to gain skills in growing tropical fruits and vegetables in an organic way and using Permaculture(sustainable techniques).Our's is not a commercial farm and we believe in the philosophy "From soil to the plate". You will get to eat a lot of fresh fruits and vegetables. You will also get to enjoy a lot of nature.

    We are also a spiritual family and would love to connect with conscious souls. You will be a part of the family in whatever we do. We will be celebrating festivals together. You will immerse yourself in the local culture. I am sure it will be a great way to experience Indian customs and our way of life. We are also a spiritual family and very much into Meditation. We can take you to temples and show you around the city. There are plenty of places around with historical monuments and ancient architecture.

    You will get to cook food together with us. We can teach you all the Indian dishes we cook at home and it would nice if you can teach us some dishes from your country. We are eager to learn.

    We are a traditional Indian family still keeping up with age old traditions, customs and rituals. We have a big garden surrounding the house. We have also just started to implement permaculture techniques on it. We are very much into a sustainable way of life and living in harmony with nature.

    Our main crop is mango and we have around 30 mango trees. We also grow plenty of other fruits and vegetables. We are really looking for people who can help us on the farm (plucking fruits,maintaining the garden, watering the plants,Weeding,nurturing the plants, manuring, pruning etc.) and also help us implement permaculture activities . Of-course we will provide you with all the necessary training, support and help and we will also be working along with you on the farm.So, people keen on learning or having hands-on experience with permaculture, Sustainable living, landscaping, organic farming etc are always welcome.

    We have also been making ancient Ayurvedic medicines from plants. We make oils, shampoo, various gels for our skin nourishment, soaps etc. in a natural way. But this depends mainly on the season. You can enquire with us. We are looking to connect with conscious and spiritual souls who want to practice their routines or new people who want to learn and explore their minds and bodies.

    We have also had requests from volunteers for yoga and meditation classes. We can take mediation classes and hatha yoga classes but need a yoga teacher (not necessarily certified but having good knowledge and decent experience) who can teach the volunteers and us some yoga. Kindly note that most of the people coming would prefer beginner level classes.

    We also need artists to decorate our farm. Be it painting the walls and benches or any other innovative stuff(like murals, art). You just have to be creative and improvise on the farm. Come out with your own ideas and what looks best on the farm.

    We also need a web designer/Photographer to help me with the website for our farm. We still don't have a website and it would be great it someone can offer a helping hand. A good photographer will also help to keep uploading recent pictures of the farm on social media and the website.

    We also accept workawayers who do not have any experience at all but have the willingness, desire and the motivation to learn new things irrespective of their age. We believe one needs to start somewhere and why not with us.
