Suman Sangam-- A forest farm

"The ultimate aim of farming is not to cultivate the land and grow crops but to cultivate the mind and shape the character of the human beings."

--Masanobu Fukuoka

All through our journey the guiding principle has been to be as eco friendly as possible in all our operations on the land and to increase the biodiversity. And to explore various aspects of happy healthy and sustainable living. To learn how to reduce our black [carbon] footprint and enlarge our green [life] handprint. [Nothing against black please; we love black as much as any other colour]. We started with some ideas of organic farming. Now we see natural farming / permaculture as our path and goal.

We are increasingly realising the truth of Fukuoka's statement and are trying to realise it in action.Suman Sangam is not just a farm with monetary returns as the only goal.

Our aim is to realise the dream of what SUMAN SANGAM stands for -- a confluence of flowers i.e. biodiversity and confluence of good minds. Now Suman Sangam is shaping us more than we are shaping it!

By design, we have kept the facilities in Sangam at the simplest possible level. We believe there should be a certain degree of difficulty and effort in achieving / obtaining anything. That makes our joy and satisfaction more rounded. You agree with us?

We believe in the essential goodness of every human being. And we always try to touch that core in all our relationships. Precisely why we love to practise FORWARD GIFTING principle in Sangam. No fixed tariffs here. Somebody in the past has already paid for your stay. So now you come, stay with us, enjoy the place enhance our happiness and pay whatever you feel is fine -- from 'zero to infinity' as a friend of ours put it !
