My tribesmen slash and burn jungle every year to cultivate maize, paddy, ginger etc thereby leaving the jungle barren with no trees after that. This practice is discourage due to environmental reasons. However, in the absence of alternative sustainable livelihood options, the practice continues on. This campaigner after years of experience in computer service providing, media, insurance sales and other traditional livelihood professions have decided to go into full time farming in agri and allied farming. He has already planted 1200 trees which will be stopped from being cut or burned and is expected to provide employment and pave way to follow suit by the villagers for generations. He intends to take up fast return-low investment-high profit farming such as Kiwi fruit, large export cardamom, plantation of black walnut(Akhroat) for lumber, Aghar and sandalwood tree, banana, orange, apple and intercropping with ginger. These mentioned projects are expected to turn the lands which are slashed and burnt every years in cycle of years into high value high profit generating income and change the economy of the village thereby attracting similar follow suit from neighboring villages as well as the whole state, but protect the environment and help keep the earth's climate cool.
Acquire tree and crop seed, meet labour cost and acquire more wastelands for the project.
