Sahjivan is a small eco-farm in the North of India near Solan and Kinnaur in Himachal Pradesh. The Farm draws inspiration from the great civilizations which sustained for thousands of years without chemicals or high-tech machinery. It also draws inspiration from Masanobu Fukuoka, a farmer and philosopher and a plant pathologist, who was born and raised on the Japanese island of Shikoku. At Sahjivan one can learn and practice Natural farming (Permaculture, no till farming, organic farming, etc.), eco construction (building with Mud, stone, wood, bamboo and waste material), earthen pottery, bamboo basketry and bamboo mat weaving, Ram pump construction, etc.
Staying at the farm will be a confidence building experience for self-reliant, happy and healthy living. Humans can live in symbiosis with Mother Nature and help in mitigating climate change and alleviate human sufferings due to industrial age technologies and lifestyle.
Building self-reliant communities that strongly believe in sharing resources and building healthy relationships with ecology.
Nature has abundance of resources for everyone’s need. Sustainability of civilizations and cultures depends on an economy supported by a thriving ecology. Everything on earth is an extension of the five elements of which the earth is composed of. By contaminating the Earth, humans are contaminating their own lives.
