This programme of the Bodhiraja Foundation promotes organic farming free from chemicals and toxins which is identified as one of the main causes for non-communal diseases (NCDs), the world over. At present the Sri Lankan government is concerned with NCDs and has given priority to organic agriculture, farming free of chemicals, toxins and heavy metals which would lead to a healthier life-style. In order to support this initiative and to help the local farmers, the foundation commenced producing organic fertilizer at the cattle sanctuary. The main ingredient of the fertilizer is cow dung from the cattle of the sanctuary.
It is very difficult to consume healthy food item these days as most of them are contaminated with some amount of poisonous chemicals. Thought we have understood this situation it is not an easy task for farmers to get out of this situation as there are very limited options / alternatives to agro-fertilizer. Therefore, Bodhiraja Foundation always tries its best to assist in such situations and support the local farmers / villagers to avoid these difficulties through timely programmes and initiatives.
