Project Summary

The Himalayan Farm Project wants to create a sustainable organic farm and to introduce a growing number of people to sustainable, low impact living. “The earth does not belong to men; men belong to the earth.” ~ Sri Aurobindo * Check out our brand new website * Join The Himalayan Farm Project on Facebook (click here) * Read my latest blog (click here) * Discover our work with the Bhagirath Pande Charitable Trust (click here) * Take the time to explore the great work of our partner KORAKOR (click here)

Project Description

The Himalayan Farm Project is an organic natural sustainable, permaculture  farm in the lower Himalayan mountains of Uttarakhand in India. We are a 50 minutes hike from the main road and completely off grid. We are adjacent to a reserve forest and our regular visitors are spooted deer, barking deer, wild boar, a whole host of Himalayan birds and the occasional leopard (Pathera Pardus).

Right now we are in the process of planning & setting up a low impact building on the land for our volunteers and our visitors. We are exploring mudbricks and bamboo structures. Because we are completely off grid we are also looking into solar and wind to harness power for the farm. 

Please Check out our brand new website, which has most of the information including for volunteers. You are welcome to contact us on Email ID - [email protected] Yopu may like to join us on face book too.

Legend of Badges

Note: The various badges displayed in people profiles are largely honesty-based self-proclamations by the individuals themselves. There are reporting functions users can use if they know of blatant misrepresentation (for both people and projects). Legitimacy, competency and reputation for all people and projects can be evidenced and/or developed through their providing regular updates on permaculture work they’re involved in, before/after photographs, etc. A spirit of objective nurturing of both people and projects through knowledge/encouragement/inspiration/resource sharing is the aim of the Worldwide Permaculture Network.

pri_teacher

PRI Teacher

With the exception of the ‘Member’ who has never taken a PDC, all of the above can apply to become a PRI PDC Teacher. PRI PDC Teachers are those who the PRI recognise, through a vetting board, as determined and competent to teach the full 72-hour course as developed by Permaculture founder Bill Mollison – covering all the topics of The Designers’ Manual as well as possible (i.e. not cherry picking only aspects the teacher feels most interested or competent in). Such teachers also commit to focussing on the design science, and not including subjective spiritual/metaphysical elements. The reason these items are not included in the PDC curriculum is because they are “belief” based. Permaculture Design education concerns itself with teaching good design based on strategies and techniques which are scientifically provable.

PRI PDC Teachers may be given teaching and/or consultancy offerings as they become available as the network grows.
