Can you describe your self sustaining project?
I am learning to farm organically and live sustainably. The idea is to create a self sustaining model where all basic requirements of life are met by products from the farm. We produce our own cereals, fruits and legumes. As of now we are nearly 75-80% self sufficient as far as our food requirements are concerned. The next step is to become self sustained for our energy requirement. The aim is to go completely off the grid.
Your trainings include…
I teach people techniques of organic farming, whether it is on a small plot land or a window cill that they have in their flats or bungalows. I also work with rural communities in and around Matar Village. Moreover, I work with women organizations to help them switch from chemical farming to organic farming.
Who is eligible to learn how to farm?
I had no understanding of what it means to live on a farm since my upbringing was very urban. I think anyone can learn how to farm, they don't need to have an educational background for it. There are no eligibility criterion, if you have the curiosity and the passion for it then go for it!
When did you first think about living a sustainable lifestyle?
I have a masters in Environmental Management from Australia. When I came back to India after studying I worked with a lot of NGOs and educational institutions like CEPT and Institute of Economic Growth. I was working in the development sector but I also had a specialization in environmental education on my side. During my work experience in the city, I observed a huge gap between what people were saying about the environment and how they were actually living their lives. This paradox made me unhappy and I was constantly looking for a way implement what I was saying, that’s how it all began.
