“Only by organic farming in harmony with nature, can India sustainably provide abundant wholesome food and meet the basic need of all – to live in health, dignity and peace”
A great inspiration to us is 89 year old, IFOAM ‘one world’ Lifetime Achievement’ winner 2010, Mr Bhaskar Save and his 50 year old organic farm.
His farm needs no inputs and is sustainable for the needs of his entire family. On top of this it provides a healthy income. Bhaskarbai states that small scale sustainable organic farming methods, offers every person the opportunity to live a life of health, dignity and peace.
