  • Description


    My mom and I are endeavouring to build a Agro-forest in a piece of land (Afforestation - Permaculture).
    It is a challenging and interesting project as the land and soil has to be reclaimed, landscaping and water management plan has to be done.
    We are pretty excited about it. We look forward to volunteers who has assist us with the same.

    The Project site area has an upcoming biodiversity park closeby and is in the rural area surrounded by villages. Volunteers could have the opportunity to interact and experience the authentic Indian Village life.

    Our home is a hillside property with calm and peace. You are welcome to enter our home and family and be one of us!
