Sustainable agro-ecological farming is one way to overcome the limitations of conventional farming. Green College shows us how to do it. Amita Bhaduri posted 3 years 11 months ago

Pitidri is a nondescript village that dots the rainshadow area of Purulia district in West Bengal. Droughts are common here even when the area is endowed with above average rainfall of over 1300 mm a year. Until some time ago, Urmila Mahato, a 42-year-old farmer from Pitidri had been struggling to ensure her family’s food security.
