We welcome you to come on board for an experience.
We are in the process of building an Eco Village and a community and invite you to be a part of the amazing Journey. We are a community in process for sustainable development based out of a small village called Chandoo which is near the golden city of Jaisalmer. We are creating a new prototype of responsible travelling, bringing you the best of the cultural, natural and culinary experiences. We are trying to create a totally offbeat experience cultivating an organic farm and promoting natural living with best organic practices including Permaculture.
We grow our own vegetables and fruits using the expertise of third generation of farmers. Currently we are growing or about to grow, Spinach , Coriander , Fenugreek, Cumin , Isabgol, Onions, Turnip, Wheat and Beetroot .We have a strict plastic free zone which makes our community eco-friendly. Our ongoing project includes: Building TeePee's, Cleaning, Construction, Décor, Digital Marketing and many more upcoming exciting projects related to poultry farm, fish pond, swimming pool, tree-houses, pig farm etc. as well. We have expertise in livestock and veterinary training as well if someone wishes to learn.
Though it’s a tough milestone to achieve considering harsh dessert environment, however we are giving our best to execute this project in the best possible manner. The life here is slow in the village and we take pride in creating a very low carbon impact while making the best possible efforts to reuse, recycle and make the best of the waste. You'll find many antique items aging as back as 100's of yrs old . Feel free to extend a hand to help us converting this dream to reality.
