Who I am?
My name is Tushar and I am 33 years old from India. After two years of experiential learning / studying Eco-architecture and organic farming in Rajasthan, I decided to amalgamate both my learning genres and return to my native village, Uddhar (Maharashtra). I have 2.5 acres of land here and I have started various organic farming practices and earth friendly buildings... My personal aspiration and intention is to do everything in a sustainable and earth friendly manner..
What is my project?
My current project is to create an self growing organic farm using local and natural materials like stone, bamboo, mud, grass and many more obtained in the wild...
I have divided my land into two parts >
One being the residential zone where you can reside, chill, hold discussions and sleep your hearts out in the eco-friendly Geo-Dome (made out of bamboo and hey grass) and the newly constructed Karawi House (a traditional adiwasi hut).
Second being the earth friendly organic farm which has different veggies, fruits and pulses all through the year according to the season....You might end with some juicy watermelons this season ;)
Where is it?
My land is located in a deep internal village that falls between Mumbai and Pune. It is a small village where you can literally see clear skies in the day and spot constellations at night. Its a good spot for birdwatchers. People who struggle to find peace in their city life can make this their Dojo/Ashram for meditation. My village is quite a cultural place with the rich village culture still intact. I would also request the volunteers to share their cultures and way of living or even leave a momento of their culture in my heterogeneous land!
Now comes the request, as organic farming is a slow-yield process, so it would be really helpful if the volunteer can help me with the basic amenities provided in the farm to keep the earth friendly place alive for the next person who visits.
Volunteers can help me with the organic farming or the earth friendly constructions happening at my place. This place is always open for new, creative and innovative methods and ideas of farming and building.
Volunteers can work about 5 hours a day for 5 days in a week. Specific work timings can be decided personally....
If you have any allergy to any kind of food or water, please let me know in advance, so that we can organize nutritious, organic food yet nonallergic food specially for you.
Some RULES to follow!
The best would be to avoid generating any inorganic waste but I would request everyone to keep their plastic and inorganic wastes with them and dump it somewhere out.
Also, excessive noise after a certain time at night would disturb the villagers who have a sleep early and wake early routine.
Sometime i cant open my account on my phone. is it nice if you send me MSG or whatsupp me, its very easy for me to contact via phone.I have given my number in this profile.
My land is family land and now the land is divided by 5 people. So I have to start again from first level. First i have to build mud house with bamboo and wood, second i have to start farming. So I need a lot of support if you have any knowledge related both please come to my place and help me out.
Also this time I have started new project desi chikan farm so you can work with chikan also...
Summer is start now.
