Seed Bank

We maintain a seed bank of indigenous/heirloom/desi varieties of vegetables, crops, flowers, and trees, originally collected from a variety of sources and now propagated every year at our Food Forest. We’ve learnt over and over the importance of indigenous seeds when trying to practice organic/natural farming. They are pest-resilient and more adapted to climate fluctuations than the commonly available hybrid seeds.
