Organic farm in Nepal
This is the Deal
We have been developing a big organic and herbal farm in rural setting at Sukranager village which is 170 km far away from capital city Kathmandu. The village is one of the riches village in Chitwan in term of wildlife, different culture and sports located in the adjacent of Royal Chitwan National Park which park is quite famous for one-horn rhinos, elephant, royal Bengal, tiger, chital, barking dear, ghorial crocodile, along with hundreds of varieties of birds. This village is also native to indigenous people known as Tharus; you will have opportunity to observe their culture, tradition and way of living which is very simplistic in nature.
Our vision is to create a sustainable organic and herbal farm and to introduce a growing number of people to sustainable and law impact living. We have some domestic animals like buffalo, cows, ox and goat. We use our own product tea, rice, wheat, vegetable, fruit, milk, ghee and herbal medicine.
We have also a bio-gas installation fueled by buffalo dung and other waste that provides enough gas for cooking throughout the year.
We have the project also to make a children research center in the farm for teach english and environmental to children.
We need some volunteers, local residents, guest and travellers working to help us for developing this farm and preserving the customs, traditions and environmental of the local area and live and work with nature.
