I had the most interesting, enthusiastic phone conversation with Narasinga Pakka from Bangalore who is very passionate about starting a farm. Narasinga has returned back from the US after 14 years and is seriously considering full time farming. I have huge respect for people who have the clarity of vision and the guts to do things that other’s shy away from. I’m also a big fan of putting your heart and soul on a project and doing it full time.
Narasinga sent me this email and I took his permission to post his ideas so others can benefit from his knowledge. The following are in Narasinga’s own words.
“I also have a small patch of land near Bangalore and I intend to develop it here are some of the ideas I’m thinking of.
2) Put in a place good infrastructure that could be like a dream I would refer to page 8 of this document at India Water Portal
4) Grow as many non fruit trees as possible you can find the list on Vanashree & Greenlocal and also at Project GreenHands
5) By the way read LEISA India Magazine on http://leisaindia.org/ and I can also suggest a few Kannada ones (if you can read it).
