The Experience

We have started a special mushroom farming. This is special in the sense that mushroom can be grown in a log of wood. The mushroom is called 'shiitake mushroom' . We have started with 2500 logs. Anyone interested can help us to water the seeds as well as take care of the mushroom farm. This work will take about 3 hours a day for 5 days Volunteers can also help with other odd chores or help to take care of the honey farming if they wish.

Mount Mahabharat Homestay is just overwhelming(10/10). Kamal and family built this awesome place in the hills of Mount Mahabharath with amazing views of the Himalayas, no noise, no pollution. It's just peaceful all around. The family is so welcoming and treated me like their own. I visited in December where the days are warm and nights are cold and unforgiving. The work in this month might involve helping with processing vegetables, help in the kitchen, etc.
Thanks to Veeta for the amazing yoga sessions every morning.

See you soon, Kamal. Thanks for everything.

Cheers,
Praneeth
