our natural farm, which we used as learning ground from past 4 years, was
gutted down in fire today afternoon around 2:00pm by miscreants (in the
earlier attempt almost a year and half back, miscreants destroyed all the
honey bee hives, 15 of them by fire). farm was full of dried mulch (start of
summer), it was very easy for fire to engulf each and everything on the
farm, we had almost all fruit plants, 10 cents of paddy field, banana
plants, beautiful canopy, wonderful neem, hardy bamboo, farm pond with 8
tailor bird nests hanging on top from pongemia tree and you name it we had
it, everything is gutted now
feeling little down right now, but again this is not the first instance of
adjacent farmers setting fire to natural farms in India, natural farms are
seen as a "weed seed generators" by farmers.
yours always alert moderator.
