The objective of this programme is both the enable women's groups to become eco-enterpreneurs as well as bridging the gaps in the availability of the bio fertilisers for use in the farmlands of the sangham members. We have found that vermicomposting can be a wonderful option which can meet both these objectives very successfully. A simultaneous objective is to demystify vermicomposting which is always billed as a highly technical venture. We have been able to prove that non literate rural women, using both exotic and local earthworms can produce vermicompost as efficiently as any high profile enterprise. By decentralising and making it available at the local levels, its accessibility has also been increased enormously.
Therefore by starting a backyard vermicompost the project has hit upon three major goals
In addition, they have also been given earthworms from our demo farm
at Machnoor village and necessary academic support by giving them required
training in small spells.
