Project Summary

Conventional agriculture, also referred to as chemical, intensive, or modern farming, on the other hand ends up coercing and exploiting nature in the name of maximizing food production. It is a constant struggle against the natural processes in which man has to overcome nature. Its underlying principle can best be illustrated by the word “cide” which means to kill; pesticide,insecticide, fungicide, nematidicide, germicide, vermicide, bactericide leading ultimately to ….homicide ?Conventional agriculture in village depends on too much chemical , pesticide, tilling of land.All these are not Eco-friendly or in tune with Nature.By tilling a lot of Greenhouse gases are released in atmosphere. When you till the land you break the structure of the soil which has been made by rats, worms, insects and micro organisms. The capillaries which are made by the up and down movement of the earthworms and other life forms in the soil are broken down and the water holding capacity of the soil is reduced. Tilling also exposes micro-organisms and other insects to sunlight and heat which kills them and destroys some humus. This reduces the water retention in the soil and also leads to lower fertility so the farmer has to bring fertilizers, either organic or chemical, from outside. We are totally against it and believes that the soil on an organic farm should become fertile on its own and should not even need organic fertilizers. When plants are force fed with chemical fertilizers ‘luxury consumption’ sets in. This means that “plants absorb excessive amounts of NPK to the detriment of other minerals called micro-nutrients and trace elements. calcium and phosphorus, zinc, copper, magnesium, iron etc.This happens even when minerals are abundantly available in the soil.”

Project Description

Our idea is to grow food in a ecological ,sustainable way and address both problems simultaneously - albeit partly!
Our Farming Principals will be

  1. No tilling of land
  2. No chemical fertilizers
  3. No pesticide
  4. Work with nature not against it
  5. Harvest the sun
  6. Nursery soil preparation for plant growth


This project is intended to help all rural people to create and live in sustainable way

1) Housing –We shall develop Green Architecture with the help of Earth.We believe in housing for the masses,these housing are cooler in summer and warm in winter and low cost too.

2) Energy  – Develop Biogas for rural household,use of solar lightings and solar pump for water pumping. This will help village community to make them less dependant on electricity and ecologically to reduce carbon footprint

3) Communities to use compost Ecosan Toilets and rocket stove in household ,this rocket stove will save fuel 

4) Landless and underprivileged , poor villagers will have more source of income and unemployed villagers will have more work hours,this will prevent farmer suicide too.

5) The birds, friendly bugs and bees who will have a home again

6) The soil microbes who help harvest dew and save water.

How This Will Help Community

Low carbon living  is generation and multiplication of energy resource in form of trapping of biomass energy,solar energy and conservation of water resource

Low carbon living  is an empowering act, by Rain Water Harvesting farmers will be able to grow food round the year. To recapture the ability to learn and master this very fundamental task in life will change the way people perceive life and the world around them and will lead to lasting change!

 1) Access to fresh local seasonal and poison free food for rural families
This supply would increase with every new community  that comes into 

2) Recycle waste within ones environment , in their own spaces
Create healthy habits in generating and disposing waste

3) Ecological way of life,reduced green house gas emission,prevent pollution

4) Create awareness about our food supply and fight against food 
contamination and GMO’s in our food

5) Provide hands on environmental education

6)  Green buildings to improve standard of living and make villager self sufficient,more hygienic condition,lesser diseases etc

7) Improve air,water  quality

8) Increase biodiversity

9) Creative Recreational Community

10) Create socially ecologically responsible citizens

Community building in rural areas!

• These  will also create ecologically richer communities and create a network of people who will share resources and ideas. This will help take charge of growing some our food and of what goes into our bodies.

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.



A member is a permaculturist who has never taken a PDC course. These cannot become PDC teachers. Members may be novice or highly experienced permaculturists or anywhere in between. Watch their updates for evaluation.

Male memberFemale member

Permaculture Matchmaker

One of these badges will show if you select your gender and the "I'm single, looking for a permaculture partner" option in your profile.



People who claim to have taken a Permaculture Design Certificate (PDC) course somewhere in the world.


PDC Verified

People who have entered an email address for the teacher of their PDC course, and have had their PDC status verified by that teacher. Watch their updates for evaluation.



People who’ve taken a Permaculture Research Institute PDC somewhere in the world.


PDC Teacher

People who claim to teach some version of PDC somewhere in the world.


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.


Aid Worker

The individual with this badge is indicating they are, have, or would like to be involved in permaculture aid work. As such, the individual may or may not have permaculture aid worker experience. Watch their updates for evaluation.



The individual with this badge is indicating they are, have, or would like to do paid permaculture design consultancy work. As such, the individual may or may not have permaculture consultancy experience. Watch their updates for evaluation.


Community Project

Community projects are projects that help develop sustainable community interaction and increase localised resiliency.
