Organic Farmers Club

One of the goals of Organic Mandya is to have a Farmers Club in each of Mandya’s 1,486 villages. The Organic Farmer’s Club is a self-help initiative that serves as a hub through which chemical-free produce grown by the farmers are sold to their fellow villagers. Excess produce after the local sales is made available to the urban consumers through our stores.

Currently there are 120+ Clubs in 120+ Villages.

Women’s Kitchen Garden Associations

An empowered woman not only adds value to her own family, but also to her village and the society at large. We encourage women to start kitchen gardens with pesticide-free produce and train them in organic gardening. Besides this, they are also trained in producing natural pest repellants and other agricultural products that can be used by their farmer-husbands.

Other organic products such as house cleaning solutions and soaps are also manufactured by these women and sold in our stores.

Free training program for Farmers

Every Monday, a whole day training program is provided to farmers in Organic Farming, manufacturing of fertilizers and repellants and making seeds. Crop-wise training programs are also provided once in 3 months.
