What you'll do

Get to know about the ways of natural farming and experience a guided tour at Prakruti farms. My home is located at the heart of the Bangalore city near Lalbagh where we shall meet. Here we will serve fresh home made healthy food. Post lunch we will head out to Prakruti farms where natural farming is practised. We have mimicked a tropical forest with edible species hence it's called a 'food forest'. You'll learn about the philosophy and practises of natural farming including Permaculture and other organic techniques. We will venture into the food forest within the farm and get to experience the natural system first hand. You can explore the high diversity 4 year old food forest with 50 varieties of fruits, 25 varieties of herbs, medicinal and aromatic plants. Get educated about how a natural forest system works and sustains itself without any land tiling, chemical fertilizers and pesticides. A peaceful walk inside the natural farm will be calming and will rejuvenate your senses. In the evening we will serve freshly brewed herbal tea made from the herbs grown in the farm. After that we will head back to the city. This will be a unique experience where you'll learn about natural farming, native Indian "forgotten foods" and relish delicious home cooked local food. The experience includes traveling service to the farm.

Raja

Though I'm an engineer by education, nature has always been my interest. I run a company called Startdesi where we are trying to revive the "forgotten foods" of India. My father used to farm as a hobby and I drew inspiration from him. I have been practising natural farming since more than 7 years. Earlier we used to farm the conventional way but a deeper understanding of nature and it's ways led me to adopt natural farming, permaculture and other organic practices. We have a high diversity food forest with various fruit trees, medicinal herbs, aromatic plants along with farm animals to create an eco-system by itself. I would love to share my knowledge so you can get inspired and reconnect with nature. My mother and sister are professional traditional Tanjore painting artists. I would love to showcase their work and history of art.

What's included

Food
Homemade snacks and lunch will be served.

Where you'll be

We will first meet at my home near Lalbagh in Basavanagudi. You'll be served fresh vegetarian food cooked by my wife. Post lunch we travel to Prakruti farms on Kanakapura road which is an hour drive from my home and spend the rest of the day there. We will return back to the city in the evening. Travel to the farm and back will be taken care by us.
