Our dairy farm is now operating! We had a lovely initiation ceremony with members, staff, friends and supporters to celebrate our wonderful dairy farm. As well as providing milk for members of our village, the dairy farm is a key step in helping to make Sristi Village fully sustainable. We are already selling some of our milk to locals, thus generating much needed income. In addition, we have also built a biogas plant, which has the capacity to produce 4 cubic metres of biogas each day!
Thank you to everyone who has made this possible. The dairy farm is central to Sristi Village as it provides an excellent source of income and centre for training for our members. We are very grateful to United way of Chennai and BoB 2016 for their financial support to build the dairy farm.
Good Spinach Project
We are starting to grow spinach at Sristi Village. Our Good Spinach Project will help to provide more nutritious food for our members and staff, as well as improve the quality of our soil. We have partnered with Naala Keerai (Good Greens!) and are thankful also to Ms. Trupti and friends for their support in this project.
