DEVELOPMENT

1.TSRDM - TGG's Sustainable Rural Development Model is a unit researched and developed by us, which works as a nucleus for any farmer having a minimum area of 1 acre or above land. The current TSRDM unit built in the office complex is a working model developed exclusively for research purpose. The model unit can house two cows, a calf , four goats & their off-springs and twenty chickens.This unit has efficiently utilized the available space for all the livestock. A carefully designed drain which leads to the bio-gas plant is also proposed for this unit. The manure from the bio-gas along with other biodegradable wastes are stored in the compost pit attached along with the unit. The water required for cleaning the unit and animals are obtained from the rainwater harvesting built along with this unit. In the absence of rain the unit can be kept hygienically using minimum water. This unit will have solar panels to meet the basic domestic power requirement of the farmer.

2.Permaculture : ( permanent agriculture) is a system of agricultural and social design principles centered around simulating or directly utilizing the patterns and features observed in natural ecosystems. Fundamental principles of permaculture is to work with nature not against, mimic natural patterns and principles, encourage diversity, use of local resources, conservation of soil and water and cause minimal disturbance to nature, We are implementing a model project at The Green Gardens farm in Wayanad.

IMPLEMENTATION

1.Common Service Center: Connecting rural India to digital world and creating co-ordination for one stop solutions for all rural development activities. It is for delivery of various Governments to Citizen Services like Passport, PAN, Insurance, Pension and Aadhaar based services and other Business to Citizen Services like IRCTC, skill development to the citizens. These are managed and operated by local skilled entrepreneurs. We provide knowledge support though the SHG we establish in your area.

2.Self Help Group : Reaching out to rural areas within the country to create opportunities for women and youths in the farming community by creating livelihood, skill development and entrepreneur projects with the support of TGG Foundation and its CSR Partners.

3.Biodiversity Certification: Based on the working model created at The Green Gardens in Wayanad, Kerala and the ethical standards established for sustainable living, similar models to be created across the country by participating with farm owners those are consciously engaged in organic farming with the intent to produce chemical free food for better health of the consumers.
