Annadana is working to conserve India’s rich and diverse seed heritage. Our efforts focus on assisting farmers across the country to adopt sustainable, chemical-free agricultural practices.The mission is to promote the conservation, production, multiplication and exchange of organic seeds of traditional heirloom vegetable varieties, few cereals and flowers.
A decade of efforts was consolidated at ‘Ishana Farms’ a 5 acre certified Agro Ecology knowledge farm.Each season between 55-60 heritage vegetables varieties are conserved in over 400 raised beds dedicated solely for seed conservation.
Since its inception, Annadana has been actively engaged in safeguarding the interest of marginal farmers. Today it has come to be recognised as a dynamic, experiential centre for promoting sustainable biodiversity as an alternative to modern corrosive agricultural methods of cultivation.
