good meet!

yesterday, sunday the nalla keerai folks had called some 70 people to their farm, sadhana kudil at pakkam near thirunindravoor..those who had shown interest not only on nalla keerai, their production and market but more for people who had shown interest to take their personal passion and urge to farm.
needless to state here that 'to farm' means it can only be sustainable /organic farming.

The bunch of peple who had come really had their passion and eager on their sleeves...this was a group of people who were serious about taking to organic farming soon..
some of them already had identified their farms, some had their family farms, some were planning to buy as a community..in all fantastic energy, sooper group of people..

it was just incidental that i had to moderate and take the discussions forward. as always apart from trying to get them all discuss and understand what they wanted and what was possible etc, i had to digress and explain what is an ideal market and how it is distorted today..also to stress the need for sustainable farming and more importantly sustainable living..
The non-elite crowd always brings the best out of me and really increases my interest and vigour:-)

and as is norm for any program involving restore, nalla keerai, safe food alliance- there was sumptuous, tasty all-millet meal!

Way to go jagan & team..

all the very best to all these eager dying-to-farm youngsters..it was fun and hope i get see most of them take to serious farming soon..
