Natural Farming Projects

Natural Farming is a diversified farming system that is chemical free and livestock based. It promotes zero budget farming which deliver many benefits such as restoration of soil fertility, environmental health, reduction of greenhouse gas emissions – a prominent strategy to save the planet.

Also known as Zero Budget farming, it focuses on the farmer being able to produce the crop based on what is available in his local ecosystem rather than being dependent on large chemical or organic fertilizer manufacturing factories thus increasing his economic stature. Natural farming uses nothing that is store-bought and primarily relies on ‘Jeevamrut’ – natural fertilisers made from cow dung and urine of native cattle species.

Arya Samaj Foundation, Chennai is promoting Natural Farming through knowledge sharing of the traditional indigenous methods and by supporting farmers to practise and implement independently on a smaller or a larger scale. Today, the Arya Samaj is working on 3 Farms in the interior parts of Tamil Nadu and 2 initiatives in the DAV Group of Schools.
