We are into the conservation of Traditional Paddy seeds. We have been doing this for the past 7 years. This year we are regenerating 118 traditional paddy varieties. In order to bring awareness about the traditional paddy varieties, for the common man we have organized a Paddy transplanting mela on the coming Sunday in Kozhikode.

1. Growing, conserving traditional paddy varieties in the fields
2. Documenting the methods of cultivation and harvesting - taking videos, photos, etc
3. Organizing meets like rice parks to spread knowledge and awareness on the rice varieties
