Community Seed Bank for Native Seeds
We are very much excited to start the construction of Community Seed Bank at our farm.
• To collect, preserve, multiply and propagate our native, bio diversified seeds among farmers and home gardeners.
• To bring back and popularize our native vegetables and crops varieties to local markets which are at present filled with hybrids and GMO.
• To create awareness about low cost, natural, healthy, alternative buildings built using locally available building materials from natural sources.
About the project:
The community seed bank’s proposed built-up area is 600sqft and will be made from 100% natural building materials. Indigenous seed storage methods and techniques will be used for preservation.
It is to be constructed in an acre of organic farm land, producing native vegetables, seeds for preservation and propagation.
Project Duration: 120 days
Project Area: 950 sqft
Estimated Cost: INR 6,00,000/-
Note: Initial proposed project area was 500 to 600 sqft with estimate cost of Rs.400000/-
