Enabling farmers cultivate organically

These 2-day workshops on sustainable farming and permaculture principles are intended for local farmers (grains, pulses and vegetables) interested in converting to organic and sustainable farming practices.

The program will have a significant focus on hands on work backed by theory sessions that will cover the underlying principles. Topics covered will include low to zero input organic farming methods, understanding soil, pest management, composting, seed saving, plant nurseries and vegetable starts, risk management, market access.

These workshops are organized working with specific farmer groups. There is no fee or contribution expected for this program from small and marginal farmers. This program can be arranged in Kanada and Tamil.

Reflections on Food – Ahara Vichara

This is a 3-day retreat for conscious repose and reflections on food. Within an overarching framework of quietude and enquiry, the retreat seeks to facilitate participants to see the inter-connectedness between growing, harvesting, preparing, consuming, assimilating food meditatively and our deeper sense of well being.

Participants are required to arrive by 5pm on a Thursday and will be able to leave by 3pm on Sundayt.  All guidance and discussion will be in English.

Fasting your way to wellness

This retreat is facilitated to allow participants to explore a 3-day to 7-day guided water-fasting regimen to reboot, reset and begin healing their body and mind and to develop a routine that is immersed in mindfulness and moderation.

Participants are required to arrive a day prior to beginning the fast and stay a day after breaking their fast. This retreat is organized on a request basis any time of the year.
