We shall be planting a wild hedge (live fence), forest gardens and agro forestry while popularising irrigation at the "Environmental Education Hub" Yields vs Output: The project shall majorly focus on out put

Full description

Yields vs Output: Output (which the project popularises) means you have a variety of foods, you are looking after the soil, water retention, biodiversity and so on. It's a win-win situation and central to land-use, agro-diversity and so on. Productivism is an.obsession, which compels farmers to exploit all their resources, soil and so on. The word exploit is apt because it undermines and degrades all resources and labour, which is not sustainable in the long-run. Vandana Shiva teaches us that ecology in agro is the way to go; output instead of yield is better for everyone, including the soil. Vandana Shiva was also referring to nutrition, cultural factors like appropriate cuisine, food sovereignty and so on.
