    All work is done by local community members who form the backbone of our farm. We have more than 8 agricultural workers in this plot. They require high level of skills/stamina/dedication to get the work done. The includes tree climbing to apply organic pest-control sprays, pluck agricultural produce like coconut or arecanut etc. The volunteers can help these full-time skilled workers and get a sense of their lifestyle.

    Some of the ways you can help are:
    One may have hands on experience of various types of manure for various different crops and their importance. Grass cutting and feeding the cows and know various aspects of animal husbandry. Grow organic vegetables for own consumption and know what vegetable garden requires. They can also have hands-on training of bee-keeping.

    Photography- One who has knowledge of photography may work on photography and try and collect photos of the property, various animals spotted, work done at the farm etc and compile it into projects that can be posted on various social media to increase online presence.
