Farm Visit

An Agroforestry Workshop:

At Chukkimane, we provide knowledge about Agroforestry practice, methods and benefits. Agroforestry is a traditional practice of integrating trees with crops and/or animals.

Agroforestry is gaining increasing recognition as a way to restore degraded sloping lands, to contribute to food security and for economic development. Chukkimane land was bare and sloping lands later which have converted into agroforestry in turn preventing soil erosion, water management, eco sustainability system, and also conserving bio diversity.

Many birds have nested near Chukkimane because of sustainability environment. At Chukkimane we have grown 100+ trees like Neem, Sacred fig, Sal, Asna, Mango, Coconut, Banyan, Agar, Peepal Tree, Amla Plant, Brahmi, Turmeric Plant, Jack fruit, Pomegranate, Indian Gooseberry etc. Agroforestry can greatly help to transform landscapes where trees are a keystone of productivity and thus deliver multiple benefits for humans and ecosystems.

Agroforestry is the combination of agriculture and forestry; rather than treating these as separate options for land use, it brings both together, recognizing and promoting tree use on farms.
Well managed agroforestry systems on sloping lands provide food, fiber, fodder, fruit, construction materials, medicine, honey, dyes and resin/gum, among other products. They also provide cultural and household utility items. Planted trees can also improve soil fertility and therefore support the production of staple crops and enhance food security in this way.
Sloping lands are vulnerable to a number of risks and hazards. Intense monsoon rain can trigger landslides and flash floods and lead to soil erosion. Trees on slopes can help to prevent these effects, replenish soils and provide other environmental services. For example, a combination of grass strips, shrubs and trees in contour hedgerows on slopes can significantly reduce soil erosion. In addition, droughts can significantly reduce agricultural production, but agroforestry trees can help redistribute water in soil to provide annual crops with greater water availability, and provide shade to prevent water loss



Chukkimane provides insight knowledge about Permaculture practice, methods and benefits.

What is Permaculture?

Permaculture, a combination of the words permanent and agriculture, offers a unique approach to the practice of sustainable farming, ranching, gardening and living.
Permaculture Design Principles:

By observing natural ecosystems, we can learn to imitate Nature and create constructed ecosystems that are productive and non-polluting.

Bird Watching:

Chukkimane is habitat for wide variety of Birds. We take guests for bird watching. You will get a chance of watching rare birds.

The weather of Chukkimane is ideal for several birds to make this as their permanent home. A lot of migratory birds also flock to the Chukkimane every year for nesting and breeding purposes, presenting a breath taking view to the bird watchers. Whether you are an avid bird watcher or are simply mesmerized by the grace and beauty of these winged creatures, the bird sanctuaries surrounding Chukkimane will provide you opportunities for many hours of happy bird viewing.
