COME VISIT US ON THE FARM!

1 hour tour of The Odd Gumnut

Tour the farm with Laura and Kunal!  We are always happy  to take time out of our day and show you and yours around the property. 

Farm tours last 1 - 1.5 hours and include delicious organic refreshments (think kombucha, fresh bread, various pickles). We offer tours at a very modest price of 750 rs per person because we want this knowledge to be accessible and affordable! 

We begin all tours by familiarizing you with Permaculture - what is the history, the ethics, principles and essentials fo the movement. We will tour all through the workshop and farm, highlighting companion planting, integrated pest managementour greenhouse and seedling raising, our composting system, the chicken coop, our greywater system, the composting toilet, herb spiral, up and coming food forest. 

In the workshop, you will see how we run our business according to circular economy principles and maintain a zero waste household. 

Farm tours are super fun for the whole family. Adults leave inspired and motivated and kids have a blast playing with the happy chickens and tasting the rainbow of edible flowers. 

To book, give us a call directly or message via WhatsApp.

"Food after all is life… Every time you eat, you can make a massive change. You can throw your weight behind ecosystems, behind diversity, behind farmers. Or you can throw your weight behind greed, behind super profits, behind ill health that is killing both this planet and its people. Make your choice. It’s easy"  - Vandana Shiva
