Inspired by Mahatma Gandhi’s vision of self-sustained village, we – a team of engineering graduates, set out to the villages and carried out activities like planting trees, restoring water bodies and helping rural families in cattle rearing. But then we realised that self-sustained villages are not possible without acting on the main aspect of rural economy – Agriculture.
As we had no idea about farming, we interacted with many farmers and started trying our hand at farming. In this process, we were educated about the harmful effects of chemical based farming on farmers, consumers and also Mother Nature. With the help of few farmers who practiced traditional farming techniques, our tryst with chemical-free natural farming began. Along with the rural community, we toiled hard, learnt things the hard way and finally felt the joy of growing and tasting our own chemical-free harvest.
Being Urbanites, we also learnt that there was a genuine need for Organic products and also that there were doubts about the chemical-free nature of the products available at nearby ‘Organic’ stores.
Thus there were two problems with the same solution – ‘Natural farming’ with complete transparency We saw the clear linkage and that’s how myharvest farms was born!
