AN APPEAL TO ASSIST INDIA'S AMAZING ORGANIC FARMERS TO PARTICIPATE IN ORGANIC MAHOTSAV AND SHARE THEIR KNOWLEDGE IN GROWING FOOD WITHOUT POISON WITH THE REST OF THE WORLD.

The Organic Mahotsav 2019 is a biennial national convention on Organic Farming hosted by OFAI.  

The convention will witness one of the largest gathering of organic farmers , promoters, consumers  from all over India . A total of 3,000 organic farmers will come together in Udaipur to share their techniques of raising food and crops without damaging soils or harming people's health.
These farmers have chosen to produce safe food, i.e., food grown without the use of chemical fertilisers and pesticides.

However, many of these organic farming pioneers are finding it difficult to attend the Organic Mahotsav without financial assistance. These expenses come to approximately Rs.5,000 per person (travel by train, modest Udapiur accommodation, food and registration charges).

This is where you come in. Your support will assist these farmers to travel to Udaipur and plug their knowledge and expertise into the ever expanding sea of good practice techniques involved in the production of safe and nutritious food.

The Organic Farming Association -- a not-for-profit body – is launching this crowd funding appeal to cover the expenses relating to the participation of these 1000+ farmers -- selected from different states of India -- which is estimated at around Rs.25 lakhs (since we are hoping that the 1000+ farmers will each and on average be able to bear atleast half the cost, i.e. Rs. 2,500).
1.You can make a donation of any amount you wish.
2.You may also contribute towards the complete expense of 1 or more farmer i.e. Rs. 2500 /-per farmer  
(For eg.-If you want to donate for 4 farmers, you can make a donation of Rs. 10,000/-(ten thousand).

Earn yourself a “Proud Kisaan Supporter” Badge on our website  and social media for your contribution.

All money collected through this crowd funding appeal will be used exclusively for the travel, accommodation, food and registration requirements of individual organic farmers who need it, and will not go towards any other organizational or infrastructural expenditure of the Convention or to salaries of staff or any other Convention expense.

The Association will create a permanent archive or manual of the organic farming techniques being shared at the Convention. After the event ends, this archive will go on the Net, to be of benefit to any person in future wanting to raise food in fields, parks, gardens, anywhere, always in tune with natural principles, and without chemicals, without poisons, and without GMOs. So you will be contributing to that permanent asset as well.

Please help us make this happen! Not only you will feel good by making this contribution to the fund, the earth will feel better as well!
