ORGANIC INDIA was formed in the 1990's by a small group of people from around the world who met in Lucknow, a town in northern India. Their idea was simple: establish a sustainable business model to support the livelihood of impoverished farmers in India by providing training and education, enabling self-sufficiency, and developing skills that could be passed on to future generations.
Love and Consciousness in Action:
At the heart of ORGANIC INDIA is our commitment to be a living embodiment of love and consciousness in action.
The work we do as human beings matters. ORGANIC INDIA's products and practices are created by conscious decisions based on True Wellness-the guiding principle of ORGANIC INDIA-describing a system that harms no one and is beneficial to all, from the earth to the consumer, and every farmer, employee and community in between. In practicing True Wellness, we ensure that our business practices enhance the wellbeing of the natural environment and all beings.
Regenerative Agriculture by Small Family Farmers:
ORGANIC INDIA works with thousands of small family farmers in India to cultivate tens of thousands of acres of regenerative organic farmland. Regenerative agriculture is a sub-sector of organic farming that regenerates unhealthy soils and builds upon soil fertility, in order to protect and restore the earth. Regenerative agricultural practices go beyond organic and sustainable agriculture, by regenerating the soil, land, and surrounding ecosystem in order to restore vibrant health to the environment. Simply put, we put in more than we take out.
Our commitment to agricultural regeneration includes our commitment to regenerate small family farmers and their communities through job opportunities, education, healthcare, access to clean water, job skills training and social programming. ORGANIC INDIA provides meaningful livelihoods to India's at-risk populations, including women, widows, the elderly and the illiterate, purchasing crops at a premium market price whether farmers fail or flourish. Farmers also rotate between growing crops on their land for ORGANIC INDIA with subsistence crops for themselves. This means that farming families are supported by a sustainable income, while at the same time improving and preserving their own health, a biodiverse natural environment and a strong community.
