I love my home town. A realistically lovely video of Pondicherry. Got a tinge of homesickness now.
Announcing the ‘Back to Land Unconference’. This a friendly two day event aimed to bring together city folks who want to transition to sustainable living closer to nature. The event has a focus on natural farming and related areas like water harvesting, renewable energies, natural building, home-schooling etc. A great opportunity to connect with people who are thinking of or have already treaded this path.
The event takes place in Chennai on August 17 & 18. Do sign up here https://www.facebook.com/events/144371582432529/ . Please share this with friends who are passionate about farming and its way of life.
I’m developing a mini-food forest at my farm and this is inspired by Shubendhu Sharma, an automotive guy turned an eco-entrepreneur. He has set up a professional firm called ‘Afforest’ which helps build man-made forests. He follows the Japanese ‘Miyawaki Method’ of helping grow forests that aid in faster growth. Thanks Lakshmi Rebecca for bringing him on to your show.
Mix brilliant talent and a great sense of humour and this is what you get! Must watch.
One of the many side benefits of working in a farm. Next weekend, a bunch of us are headed to our village. Ping me if you are game.
