Be an organic farmer for a day
You will work or go around with one of the caretakers of the farm: Mostly our Mr.Marudhachalam (Anna) will be there with you and you/your group showing the farm and do's and don'ts. The farm is a classic example of how dryland can be converted into a fertile one using rainwater harvesting and drip irrigation. There are approximately 20 coconut trees yielding and another 100 in various stages of growth. Also yielding are around 60 Amla ( Indian Gooseberry plants) depending on the season. Moringa is another crop of around 40 trees. There are no machines and all work is done manually and with lots of enthusiasm. While you are on the farm you will be surrounded by lots of birds. You’ll be part of our farm family when you are there and join us as we wander through the farm with various daily chores like watering ( mainly drip irrigation), cleaning the weeds, harvesting coconut and preparing for the market, removing weeds, planting new sapling trimming the existing plants and many more. You don't have to work too and keenly watch or listen to our stories about how we brought this land like this from dryland in the last 10 plus years. My farm and my village are special places for us. After we work we can enjoy our lovely meal together on the farm under a tree or roof as you wish overlooking the blue mountains!
Wild Bhoomi Nature tours
Discover another side of Pondicherry, away from the crowded Promenade or the busy marketplaces. Spend an early morning or later afternoon by one of the many water bodies. Colors and bird songs will fill your day. Stay in the comfort of a car while watching birds go about their business or take a walk to practice your stalking skills. Photograph some beautiful landscape, gorgeous birds, and if lucky maybe other creatures like a Mongoose or for the bold ones a snake or two. When hunger grabs you take a break and sip on some refreshing coffee or tea while having a great view of the wilderness. Drive back through some quiet rural areas and witness a simple, slowed down life that we all miss out on in the everyday rush. Other things to note The timing of the tours will depend on the season. During the monsoon, early mornings at water bodies aren't too fruitful due to the lack of birds as the water levels can be too high for them to feed in. Although some years the water levels aren't an issue. In that case, evenings are the best option to experience the wilderness as we explore the forests and wooded patches.
