"Learning humility, purity and simple-living from those who don't take too much from the earth...
Targetting the problems of hunger, disease and oppression that sadden their lives...
Inspiring in each other trust, confidence and support for one another..."

  Goals

 

 

The overall concept is that particular ideas-techniques can be easily adapted to certain areas . This depends upon factors like : land condition ( high , medium , low ) ; soil condition ( example salinity ) ; presence of water in soil (how fast the land dries after the rainy season) ; large scale availability of raw materials for composting ; existing crops and crop cycles ; presence or absence of certain trees ; lands adjacent to houses ( for integrated farming ) etc.
