We are raising $20,000 to purchase a tractor - an essential for the farm.  See more

THE STORY:

Amrit Eco Farm is a project of Bal Ashram, an orphanage in Varanasi where children with no parents find a loving home, good education, and are being raised to be socially and environmentally conscious global citizens. Amrit Eco Farm is a ten acre working farm showcasing sustainable methods of farming that include: recycling, composting, and utilizing alternative models of energy like bio-gas, solar, and animal-driven power as well.

This farm is managed by the children of the Bal Ashram where there is a mini dairy with 20 cows, 50 boxes of bees producing honey, organic vegetables, pulses, seeds for oil pressing, and Ayurvedic herbs. The excess organic produce from the farm is made available in the community while promoting a healthy organic diet.

Amrit Eco Farm is also open to farmers from the local community and children from various schools in the city for field trips to learn about the environment as well as sound practices of farming. Children love to come here and learn about flora and fauna, insects, germinating seeds, planting little sucklings, harvesting, and interacting with the farm animals. Amrit Eco Farm will evolve into a destination not only for locals but for tourists from all over the world wishing to provide service in India's most holy city.

OUR WISH LIST:

• We want to raise $20,000 for a tractor on the Eco Farm. Please donate to this meaningful and important cause. 

All of your funds go this project. There are no administrative costs.
