Farmers of Tusse, Machhapuchhre Rural Municipality Ward-1 have now adapted IPM (Integrated Pest Management) practices. Caritas Nepal (CN) succeeded to persuade them for cultivating organic vegetables through IPM technologies which not only helped them to produce healthy crops but their production rate also increased massively.
With an objective to create additional source of income and employment opportunities to the farmers, Caritas Nepal’s IPM program funded by Caritas Australia (CA) and Australian Aid has initiated, “Machhapuchhre Agro-Eco Tourism Learning Center and Homestay”, project targeting for farmers prosperity.
Aiming to encourage rural farmers, foreigners and students to visit the center and learn on advance eco-friendly agriculture practices/technologies, motivate visitors to replicate practices at their farm for better and healthy production.
61 farmers and their families are expected to improve the agriculture marketing system for strengthening their livelihood security. Since 2008 with the establishment of Baraha Agriculture Cooperative, CN has been promoting farmers organic production with the minimum use of chemical pesticides.
This homestay was aimed to boost the livelihood of farmers by motivating them for optimum utilization of CN interventions. 500 guests can be accommodated in a day.
