Inspiration flows easily here like those mountains streams that run around it. The sight of the mighty Himalayas makes sure you always have something to look up to, to elevate your productivity and work life.
In simplest terms, we at Ghoomakad are into the production of food, fruits and other plant products using organic farming and permaculture techniques that protect the environment, public health and human communities.
We also encourage patrons who stay with us to inculcate this into their lives or spread awareness about these farming techniques. The study of relationships between organisms and their environment is what all sustainable farming is about. We have total ‘zero’ dependence on the buy seeds, fertilizers and other equipment from the market. The food produced as such is highly nutritional and chemical free.
MOUNTAIN SURVIVAL CAMP
The location is an exquisite one. A beautiful hut in the midst of the raw nature at the foot of the giant Dhauladhar, leading to Kundli pass. It is surreal, quiet and full of life there. It is a great opportunity to connect with nature and mountains and learn about them. Perhaps also about the self. This survival camp is all about learning:
- How to identify dry wood. Cutting and bringing it to the camp.
How to cook and wash with least resources
How to fix injuries with local herbs and fractures with wood plasters
How to carry back an injured or fainted person in the mountains
Local folklore and songs
About the spirits, herbs, and animals of the place – how to live in harmony and respect with them (basically how not to invite trouble)
