The Peanut Harvesting Field Day was held on Saturday, 7th September 2019 at Darpan Ashram. This was an initiative by Kshetra Darpan (Darpan Foundation’s Centre for Natural Farming, Environment Conservation & Rejuvenation)
The enthusiastic volunteers experienced the sheer joy of harvesting peanuts, getting their hands in the soil, gently pulling out the peanut plants, enjoying the fragrance of the fertile soil and the fresh peanuts.
One of the volunteers remarked wittily “a family that harvests together stays together”!
It was a day well spent, with nature, understanding what pure food means and how much effort is involved in producing a crop.
