Organic Farming

CONSERVATION OF BIODIVERSITY AND ECOLOGICAL INTEGRITY

Organic farming is an alternative to conventional farming which strives for sustainability. Organic farming is not a new practice at least in Indian where there has been a culture of looking at our body and mind as part and parcel of earth or soil. Because of this wisdom soil has always been treated as a living entity and not just an inanimate lump of matter. Therefore organic farming is that system of raising crops that consciously strives for keeping soil alive and healthy by use of organic wastes like crops, animal and farm wastes. In this way through organic farming we consciously employ natural ways of conserving soil fertility and ecological balance in our farm land.

 

All our farm visitors, guests and yoga students are served organic meals prepared from the crops produced on our certified organic land.
