Organic Farming

Organic farming is an improved form of Indigenous farming. Under this network of GJEM, farmers are trained on how to produce crops without the use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides by balancing the nature and environment given by nature. So far 300 farmers of various villages were trained in organic farming at Sevasi. So far 36 programs have been organized at Modasa with aim to enable the farmers for organic farming.

Mariadoug : An ode to Nature

Mariadoug was once a forested mountain, it became barren a decade ago. The people of the surrounding villages faced acute water shortage due to the deforestation. The hardship of the community inspired Fr Kishore and village leaders to undertake a massive afforestation and water harvesting program. The film tries to juxtapose the original footages taken by Fr Kishore along with present day imageries of people reaping the fruit of the program. The film is a testimony of how a community came together to regain the environment they had lost.
