Established in April 2019, Vad Permaculture Demonstration Farm has been co-created with Vinayak Vad - a marginal farmer in Tansa Valley, Maharashtra - and his family.
The core idea is to enable the farmer and his family to be self-sufficient while regenerating the ecology.
We engage in a participative process to
Build on the farmers' traditional wisdom
Empower famers with the knowledge of permaculture
Design locally relevant strategies
Demonstrate these strategies for the benefit of neighbouring farmers
Total Outreach: 40 farmers; 10 trainers; 22 children
We partner with on-ground local organisations who are part of the community. We train the trainers and the community members.
The scope of the workshops is mutually decided upon based on the needs of the community.
