Agriculture programs

H.E.L.P. is redefining successful farming and agriculture programs.
The extreme rocky topography of the Himalayas makes successful subsistence farming a challenge. This challenge, coupled with the fact that crop production determines the income and health of the family, amplifies the need for the successful farming protocols taught through H.E.L.P. programs. 
Our H.E.L.P. agriculturalist and team has started over 27 farmer field schools and cooperatives. We continue expanding the message of organic, pesticide free farming to starving farmers. 
Mushroom growing, vermiculture, composting, use of Effective Microorganism (EM), floriculture, and fruit cultivation are some of the agriculture topics taught.
