  • Thulasi Eco Village---
After traveling through rural India for more than seven years, in the August of 2016, I started living in a remote village called Atale, Mandangad Taluka, it  the  high rainfall  area of Maharastra state in India,yet most of farmer has left farming and gone to big cities like Mumbai,Pune in search of employment.

That year we started planting Mango,Cashew ,Coconut and lot other tree,we find mango and cashew tree require least care and survive best in this climate,we have made a mud house small one

Being set up in more than 10 acres of land, Thulasi Eco Village  is the prototype of an Abundant village, being built by the villagers, for the villagers. It will be a center for learning, practice, demonstration and dissemination of the knowledge on how any community in this region can organize itself to be Socially cohesive, Ecologically sustainable manner..

How you can help
We are demonstrating natural farming by setting up a model farm of 3 acres ,we have adopted Subash Palekar and Bhaskar Save model,. Thulasi Eco Village is currently in need of funding to support the Rain Water Harvesting Ponds on the model farm. The earthworks enhance the water holding capacity of the land, and allow intensely productive bio-diversity to thrive.These Ponds will used to grow azolla and fish.We shall integrate it with Native Poultry breed and Fresh Water Pearl Culture.
We shall generate some income with integrated farming ,this will help the return to youth  back to the village.
Why do we need a demonstrative village?
The glamorization of urban life is robbing the villages off their youth. The rich traditional knowledge suddenly has no takers, and the keepers of the same are dying. Stuck in the current paradigms of consumption driven growth, rural India is getting dangerously close to becoming intellectually bankrupt... The loss of this knowledge is reducing the self-reliant “providers” into helpless “consumers”.


Just in case you are interested in the Story
I quit my city job being fed up of  corporate culture. This decision gave me the opportunity to explore the country I called mine, but never knew much about. I then traveled for more than seven years across rural India.
