Converting a piece of abandoned / बंजर land to again be conducive to organic farming is not easy. The Himalayan Inter College school and Himalayan Naari communities in Chaukori has had success in setting up the basic framework of the farm and some vegetables in 2019. The challenges of infestation by grubs and ants is quite overwhelming. So is the challenge of wild boars. HEF is working with various people to tackle these challenges in an environmentally friendly manner. This is part of the nutrition, dairy and agriculture project that we have undertaken for this community. For those who follow our work, I wanted to share some of the real ground-level challenges that we face, and not just our success stories.

This is where tea first was grown in india....long before Darjeeling and other places

This is a very good initiative👍. I must advise to include making green tea from the harvesting if possible. Because in this era everyone is more concern about their health.
