We are aware that this pandemic has gotten the best of us, but we are happy to share our farm with you- our little hideaway. The farm was established in 2019 with the vision to restore and propagate the natural flora and fauna of 9 acres of agricultural land in Najafgarh, New Delhi. We are an urban farming and community space that’s being shaped up as a refuge for all the bees, birds, butterflies, cows, insects and other animals that call our farm their home. We are using slow and small solutions to reach a state of balance with nature by practicing natural farming, permaculture design, agroforestry, native habitat restoration, composting, etc. It has been almost one year that we started working intensively on the land and slowly it has started to shape up.
We have two families living on the farm with five children aged between 3-8 years. In your free time, you can play with them. You can also spend time in the gaushala. Our farm is located right next to a wetland. So you are encouraged to research on the birds that visit the farm. There is a market very nearby and also public transport connectivity.
Our achievements so far:
2.5 acres big market garden for seasonal vegetables and herbs that we sell in order to run the farm
Intensive hot compost piles
Nursery for various plants- native, medicinal, support species, fruits, grasses, vegetables, herbs and flowers
Grey water recycling
Lots of mulching
Permaculture veggie patch
Bamboo outdoor shed with sarkanda thatching
IPM & INM interventions
Waste management system
Gaushala which is home to 5 cows and 4 bulls
Habitat creation for endangered birds
Research on native ecology
Natural construction using mud, lime and bamboo
Land design using permaculture principles
Maintenance of existing systems
Expanding nursery operations
Native trees planting
Propagating medicinal plants
Summer is a tough time for the farm when extra care and attention needs to go in protecting the soil, the plants and also yourself! So ditch the city and move in with us. We’re taking 4-8 people this summer.
We will not let the pandemic rain on our parade. Join the community and let’s create beautiful things together.

There are many types of accommodation available on the farm such as camping, individual room or living in community style in our office. We have an active well equipped kitchen which can be used by you.
We grow lots of seasonal vegetables and grains on the farm, all naturally. These are available for the volunteers to use for meals. We have two families that live on the farm, meals can be eaten with them in a community spirit. If volunteers want their own privacy, then there is an open kitchen completely stocked with supplies that can be used for preparing meals.
