Namaste Permies!

Myself Nikhil Bose from Kerala, India. Me and my family have been growing via organic methods and stumbled upon Masanobu Fukoka's method in 2015-16, since then we have slowly walked on to a mulched landscape Got married and my better half gave the idea of posting our videos on Youtube so that more people get aware about the sustainable methods adopted us via Permaculture. As permaculture is a new term around here except Narasimma Sir's and Padma Ma'am's "Aranya" in Karnataka.

So here I am in premise posting my first post and would love to hear from you all!! Have also set up a website too just today, need to spread the word for sure and help more people; here's our blog -https://permaculturekerala.wordpress.com/

Some videos we made are below; there are English captions too.

Much love from Nikhil Bose & family; "
Back To Earth"

1st video was not that professional, but it was a start-



Second was us making the Hugelkultur Beds



3rd is the recent one, our plants started producing

Well, as Geoff Lawton says, we are Terraformers

A lot happened over the past year.

1. We have a new member in our family, Master Lovik Nikhil Bose arrived on 19th September 2020 and is now 11 months old.

2. We have started designing gardens for 3 different teams. One is in flat land with sandy soil, second is in arid hard clay pan sitting on a slope and the third is in a hilly area with clay soil and an undulating terrain with some degree of planting.

3. We transformed our terrace into a terrace garden (rooftop garden) where we grew some winter crops and now Monsoon is just getting over. We have started new plantings in paper cups and most are ready to be transplanted.

Some updates are below, enjoy!

Monsoon was wonderful!





Oh and we threw some Turmeric into a Hugel bed we made (without covering with soil). For an experiment these are good yields!



This is how we set up our Terrace Garden, you can do too. Phase 1 below;



Monsoon Terrace Garden-



So, this is how our garden looks now. We will be trying to mulch with sawdust this season, lets see how it goes. Cover crops like sweet potatoes are growing very rapidly and need to control a bit. Snakes have scared my kid, so gotta do with heavy mulch.


P.S: I dislocated my left shoulder so there won't be much action to boast about for a while
