When Manisha and her husband acquired a piece of land in the hope to grow clean food and harvest freshwater, they did not know that their lives would change forever, in more ways than one. They established Aanandaa Permaculture Farm as an example of working with nature to create a self-sustaining & regenerative ecosystem. They challenged the local wisdom of chemical farming and convinced their team to adopt a chemical-free path to build a food forest. Watch how Manisha explains the details of converting a barren piece of land into a thriving ecosystem, and why she believes that permaculture is the pathway to self-sustenance and harmony.
