Off-grid, self-sustainable, vegan farm in the making in the hills


El intercambio

There's a LOT of work that needs to be done, such as - making gardens, clearing weed, cooking, planting trees, general cleanup and working on the aesthetics of the place. And this is where I need the most help from participants. Tree planting, garden making, digging, making water conservation designs, weeding, mulching, watering trees and basically anything you can imagine to do in a vegan farm without animals :)

Programa detallado

Kerala is known as gods own country. However, in the village of Kadambara, the local villagers (who are mainly comprised of tribals) have for long faced a severe enemy: malnutrition. So much that malnutrition-related deaths in Kadambara is one of the highest in India. We thought this would be an appropriate place to start a project that would work not on aid but on empowerment. But first, we need to empower ourselves. Hence, the idea of an off-grid self-sustainable farm. If this project succeeds, then we can use it as a simple model that can be replicated anywhere. As a participant, you'd mainly be helping out in this goal. This collaborative goal can only be achieved with a sustained and dedicated effort of all those who have the time, energy and maybe even the skill to share.


Actividades & Turnos

Our daily work includes planting and watering trees, taking care of the vegetable garden, digging water catchment pits and ponds, creating water conservation structures such as bunds, trenches and retaining walls, mulching, composting, cooking and building structures that facilitate storage and shelter.
