In northeast India, there is still little technical support available for farmers and growers following traditional farming methods, or for those interested in incorporating organic agriculture practices such as composting, mulching, and natural pest control.
For the past 7 years, Fertile Ground has provided encouragement, training and resources to farmers, small-scale tea growers, extension staff, teachers, students and families living in the state of Assam.
Our projects support people to grow healthy food by bringing together some of India's traditional practices with low-cost practices that rely on locally-available materials.
An important part of our work has been to provide opportunities for volunteers to participate in outreach activities in towns and villages throughout the state - to share their skills and enthusiasm, and exchange information about the cultures and values of our two countries.
