I am Avanee Jain. An Architect, a Mother and a Farmer. My journey with research on growing food without chemicals and pesticides began over a decade ago. I dug into this Natural world to explore and examine techniques and invaluable Indian cultural practices in the field of organic farming that were lost in the post-independence era. The more I explored, the greedier I got to share this knowledge with co-urban dwellers for our benefit as well as that of Mother Nature’s. Upaj Farm was born as a platform to both showcase these techniques, as well as continue this journey of unearthing ways of living in Harmony with all beings on this planet.
About Upaj Farm.
Upaj is a farm land of 2 hectares. We have been cultivating this piece since 2010. Here Organic is a way of life. The layout is based on the Permaculture Design technique. We have a rainwater harvesting pond which irrigates (partially) seasonal crops. Fruiting trees like Mangos, Jamuns, Ber, Faalsa, Mulberry (Setur), lemon, Amla, Guava etc are planted in different zones to create smaller ecosystems. Seasonal vegetable crops are then interplant in these smaller areas. Each season, we carefully pick many different varieties and plant as many different cultivars as possible. We take great pains in nourishing our soil with compost. Organic Compost becomes the base feed and nutrition bank for all crops. We are meticulous in executing organic methods for Integrated Pest Management. We nurture and try to maximise bio-diversity. This helps in maintaining a delicate balance suitable for all life forms to thrive- all the way from Microbes to Mangoes!
