  • Descripción


    The Centre is a land of 6ha covered with forest, orchard, grazing land and several organically grown crops. We also have many cows, buffalos, chickens. Our organic activities include growing wheat, gram, lentils, mustard, sesame seeds, different fruits such as mangos, lime, amla, guava and jamun and seasonal vegetables as well as lots of herbs. The Centre holds a processing unit for our organic products such as dalia, mixed flour, pickles, cereals and lentils.

    The Centre is also dedicated to the exchange of farming knowledge and know-how. Apart from our agrarian museum, showing human evolution of a farmer’s point of view, we regularly organise training (four days to a week) to share our experience, opinion and vision of what farming is nowadays and how we can improve agriculture for the next generations, without damaging the land resilience. The main message of the training is that excessive and indiscriminate use of fertilizers, insecticides, pesticides and other chemicals has harmed Indian agriculture. With this the very taste and nutritive quality of the products are spoiled and the soil is fast-losing its fertility. The training is an ideal practical and pragmatic theory which encompasses all the aspects of agriculture, including farming, animal husbandry and reforestation.

    Prem started his farm in 1987 and after gaining lots of experience in organic agriculture he established the Centre in 2012 spreading his knowledge and giving people the opportunity to learn about facing the future challenges of agriculture and environment.

    We encourage farmers to become self-sufficient in manuring, watering, seed and energy production.
    The farm is also part of the volunteering community and regularly welcomes volunteers from all over the world. If you feel like helping and learning about organic agriculture, you are very welcome to come, observe and experience the Centre.
