RUCHI NGO. It has been in operation since 1983 in the hilly area of Himachal Pradesh state with a commitment to ameliorate socio-economic condition of people.
With this initiative we aim to educate and train farmers in nearby communities by acting as a resource and demonstration centre for sharing good practices among farmers. Our focus is to encourage farmers to reduce usage of chemical fertilizers and still increase their agriculture income & output.
Below are the few tasks which could be undertaken by volunteers to assist us:
• Assist our agriculture specialist in daily maintenance of farm and produce pesticide and chemical free products.
• Actively assist our team to realise our dream to be self sufficient by producing majority of fruits, vegetable that we consume.
• Exchange and educate our team about good farming practices.
• Assist in networking of farmers so they can connect and share technical know how.

This mountainous state is also known as the land of gods. The location is 65 kms from the city of Chandigarh and 80 kms from the state capital of Shimla. The communities are dependent on agriculture primarily for survival. However, due to terraced farming, shortage of water, low educational standards and small land holdings the people just get enough from their farms for survival.
Self organized city tours and excursions. Old Sikh and Hindu temples in the near vicinity can be visited. Nearby Kasauli town, a hill station, is a major
tourist attraction. A visit to Shimla, the state capital, will offer an opportunity to see high Himalayan Mountains and British architecture.
Himachal Pradesh is a mountainous area where people are highly dependent on agriculture to complement their living in addition to their daily work. However, due to shortage of water and small terraces on sloppy land the agriculture is unsustainable and farm output is not sufficient keeping in mind economic value it gets. Also due to steep terrain and small terraces automated machines have limited usage here. As a result we fear food security in the future as many people are or about to leave agriculture.
RUCHI campus is spread over an area of 3 hectares and has good fertile soil. We at present are using our campus for exploring options of pesticide free scientific farming using natural materials. We have successfully demonstrated, Wormicompost, NADEP compost, Kitchen Gardening, Agroforestry, floriculture, organic farming, orchard development here. At present we are gearing to install hydroponics system at our campus for demonstration, training and self sufficiency. In due course we would like to serve as demonstration centre for farmers.
Extra participation fee 400.0 EUR
