During the current three Months( April - June 2016), Voice Team continued Biodiverse Agriculture interventions supported by Friends of Earth from USA , Europe and other parts of the world, through Global Giving. Main activities were technical classes on biodiversity and practical sessions for archieving better results in agriculture especially through application of organic manures and bio-pest repellents. This is the sixth year of the project.
A new group comprising 12 farm families including the relatives of Organic Farming Expert Nammalvar, "who passed away on December 30, 2013" have firmly said no to sale of their agriculture land and said instead "yes" to Biodiverse agriculture with help of Youth trained by Voice Trust under Project# 6265. (Photo's Attached).
Following suggestions have come from Youth, participating in Project # 6265
1. Youth want 5 Days Residential Training in Biodiverse Agriculture in Voice model farm.
2. Youth prefer Seed Bank with traditional varieties which withstand climate deviations.
3. Youth are ready to make organic manures and bio-pest repellents through recycling.
Above suggestions can be implemented with little helps from Friends of Earth through Global Giving.
However small donations from you starting with $25 and going above $250.can bring about results. Please extend whatever help you can make to strengthen Biodiverse Agriculture.
