Here is a brief glimpse of what you will be seeing at the Farm which we are planning to visit. This farm is located in what is called the rural health & training center known also as the Ramakrishna Mission.
It is situated a short drive down the beautiful and smooth Western Express Highway towards Gujarat.
This farm is located to your right as you go towards Gujarat, around 80 kms from Mumbai.
Here we can see many plants and trees growing in their natural style, without any harmful pesticides or chemical fertilizers.
Spread over 8 acres, it also houses a few buildings including hospitals, a Goshala where cows are looked after, and many plants all growing with the rich organic manure made by mixing manure with other organic ingredients.
The photographs here were taken in March 2012 when we dropped by on our way to the Learning Societies unconference further north.
An interesting fact that we discovered was that most of the energy needs here are met by Gobar gas produced by a state of the art all steel Gobar gas plant as seen in the picture below.
The gas is converted to energy by a slightly modified diesel genset.
The lush greenery here makes for an inviting break where we can refresh our minds and bodies.
It is a great place for a day trip, where the kids can work in the farms, and enjoy robust physical activites in the lap of nature.
If you would like to join us, we are planning a trip there soon!
See you all!
