Barren land to growing forest in 4 years
Native Species forest development with natural methods
jyothi.farm is private non-profit initiative to grow native forest trees. This barren land is planted with more than 6000 trees with more to go.
We adopt renewable energy for pumping water. Extensive rainwater harvesting methods are adopted ensuring the ground water recharge.
Natural methods are used for planting and assisting the nature to do its job. We do not use any chemical fertilizers or pesticides in this forest farm.
Satellite photos show the farm layout and farm development. We have started planting saplings Nov 2013. This section of the land top soil is completely eroded. 2012 photo shows the lack of any vegetation to hold the top soil.
