WORKSHOP ON PRUNING OF PLANTS ON 25TH MAY 2014

In our continuing quest to expand our knowledge of taking proper care of plants, we are pleased to announce a Workshop on Pruning of plants. Proper pruning of trees/plants has a major impact on their growth and productivity. Properly pruned trees/plants are likely to have greater strength, health and productivity than trees that are not pruned, especially on urban rooftop farms.



The Prayog Parivar has through experiments and keen observation, mastered the art of pruning trees. It is our endeavour to share this knowledge with urban farmers/gardeners. 

SPEAKER: 
Shri. Deepak Suchde
The workshop will be conducted by Shri Deepak Suchde who is the CEO of the Malpani Trust, Dewas, Madhya Pradesh. Taking inspiration from Dr. Shripad Dabholkar, the father of Natueco Farming, Shri Deepak Suchde has been practicing Natueco Farming for the last 20 years. He is currently working at the Krushi Tirth farm on the banks of river Narmada at Bajwada in Dewas, Madhya Pradesh. He will be sharing the knowledge gained by him from the experiments of various prayog parivar members and his experience on the farm. Use the links below to know more about his work. http://www.beyondorganicfarming.in/
