Grampari’s major focus is on promotion of Sustainable farming. For promoting the idea of sustainable farming, a National workshop on Sustainable farming was organised by Grampari for which Padmashri Shri. Subhash Palekar was present. Inspired from his idealogy of Zero Budget Natural Farming, Grampari is working in its project villages.
Paddy is dominant crop in Kharif (rainy) season and strawberry in Rabi (Winter) season. Grampari team is promoting different methods/techniques of sustainable farming for these crops e.g. application of organic mannure, seed treatment, preparation of Jivamrut (liquid fertiliser), Dashparni Ark (extract of 10 type of leaves), spraying of butter milk, use of pheromone trap, light trap etc.
Last year we worked with 7 paddy and 10 strawberry cultivating farmers who turned up for organic / sustainable farming. Our team provided information regarding the concept of sustainable farming, provided hand holding supporting at their field.
We also helped for marketing of strawberry with the help of Pune based platform working as bridge between organic producer and the market.
