FARMING AND  COW REARING
Agriculture though on a small scale is a very significant activity of Nandigram. To be in harmony with nature and stress-free living, we have here totally organic farming as an intrinsic part of the overall philosophy of creating a sustainable environment. Chemical fertilizers and poisonous pesticides have never been used here. We prepare manure through different methods, like zatpat khatar, compost manure, wormi compost, wormi-wash etc. The food grains, vegetables and fruits used in our common kitchen are 70 to 75 % grown in-house.

We in Nandigram believe in non-violence towards all living organisms in our premises. It has a well developed herbal garden for natural and ayurvedic healing. Our medicinal plantation includes Allovera, Brahmi, Tulsi, Billi etc. and pharmaceutical products are made under the guidance of an ayurvedic expert. Nandigram prepares hemoglobinic medicines from Hibiscus flowers (only red single petalled variety) in the form of powder or sherbat.
Nandigram has a sacred cow shelter (Goshala) for breeding cows of famous Gir breed. Goshala has 25 cows of Gir breed for dairy products, methane gas for fuel and organic manure. Home-made preparations from cow dung, cow urine and other herbs are found to be quite effective in certain health problems. Massage oil made from it helps patients suffering from problems related to arthritis.
