The nature of farm activities at the Poomaale Collective is getting more experimental. New initiatives to calibrate the food intake of each member are in progress. They will help us understand the quantity of food we need to grow to suffice and the variety we need for a nutritious, balanced diet. In addition, water and waste management activities like greywater recycling took place. We have also procured a good variety of native heirloom seeds, a one-time purchase, to build our seed banks and become seed-sufficient down the line. The highlight, however, was the occasional visits from vipers, crates and even the Indian Cobra to our farm which is an indicator of a fertile coffee farm. We look forward to a merry and eventful winter at the collective.
