The preventive intervention focuses on the use of indigenous seeds, sustainable agriculture (organic farming) promotion of Agro-forestry and development of ecotourism. These agricultural and ecotourism methods are natural, retaining the plant nutrients, making the soil hard, preventing erosion, encouraging the growth of plants and conserves biodiversity rich nature. It at the same time contributes to the cycling of water and thus makes the ecosystem of the place much more alive. The new ecosystem full of live will prevent environmental degradation of any sort.
Our daily activities here include:
