  • (Kathmandu)

We are working in this farm since 3 years with local helpless people. This farm is spread over 2 hectares surrounded by trees and bamboos just at the middle of the city, just few km away from center. Specialty of our farm is we grow more than 50 organic items including vegetables, cereals, and sale it to the biggest super store every day. We have farmhouse over night stay package (organic restaurant and house bar). This farm is the first model farm of valley renown as sample farm of organic agro-tourism. So we provide free organic farming training for local and international youths. Our main objectives of starting this farm is to create job opportunities for helpless and jobless people from urban area, inspire youths to work in our own county and stop youths migration. Recently 12 man and women's are working happily at our farm. Kathmandu is capital of the country it has got plenty of fertile land but people are only building houses and covering land with concrete rapidly and its also has big market more than 40% of the population willing have organic foods but hardly 4% of them able to get organic. In the other hand helpless and uneducated farmers are being abused by pesticide and chemical traders so the land is getting toxicities so badly and health of poor farmers are getting extremely worst day by day. So we want to contribute to purify the land and improve health/wealth of the farmers. We have lots of volunteers work opportunities at our farm because we are doing most of the activities which is related with farm-trade-teaching-restaurant as so on.

  • (Kaski)

We are a new and a small, new and unfinished educational and development project. It is at the top of hill, 1,590 m., in the foothills of the Annapurna Range overlooking Lake Phewa and Pokhara city. This is a hilly region, the starting point of several trekking paths, surrounded by well-managed forests, family farms and beautiful views of two river valleys. The temperature ranges from 07-30C. Besides creating an experimental farm, which practices the best methods of organic farming and animal husbandry, our overall goal, is to research, document, translate and disseminate all that we learn in an extensive teaching, training and development assistance program for other small farmers in the local and rural communities of Nepal. This includes experiments in alternative energies, such as methane production from our septic system, composting, water conservation, etc. Other related projects involve teacher training in the local schools, small business development for local crafts people, and many other related endeavors on the horizon!

We are practicing traditional farming, producing mainly potatoes, corn, beans, cauliflower, peppers, squash, tomatoes and numerous other seasonal vegetables. However, our focus is in the experiment with a large variety of vegetables and fruits, starting with numerous fruit trees and our soft fruit (raspberries, strawberries, blackberries, etc.) production that will begin in April 2010. Our greenhouse is now being modified to aid in this experimentation and for producing starters and seedlings.

Planting, cutting and grafting of plants, taking care of animals, including milking, grass cutting, cultivating, and working in the field and greenhouse etc.are your major works.
