Can Rurban Living be the next big thing? Part 2

Collective farming at a Rurban community...

Collective farming is a farmer’s community that shares farming-related infrastructure while enjoying the fruits of collective living. Farming is a laborious job, which includes a number of small tasks that need to be done right for results. As it is, farming is an unforeseen process where there is a varied number of unanticipated issues of pests, irregular plant growth and supply of nutrition which only becomes adverse with the conventional supply of power, water and labour each of which has their own set of uncertainties and irregularities. 

A sustainable collective farming community was co-created & designed to effectively counter all these conditions with the benefit of a healthy choice of living.

Still unsure about the differences between collective farming and individual farming? Let’s find out. 


Collective Farming @ Organo Naandi

  • Common farm infrastructure is shared by its residents
  • Grid-free power sourcing
  • The pooling of knowledge systems
  • Regular hassle-free upkeep and maintenance 
  • Sharing of profits and loss 
  • Water security is ensured as water harvesting and conservation works effectively for large areas. 
  • Expert care for the farm, energy, water and every aspect of the farm and living 
  • Active community that is run by professionals with a process-driven approach. 
  • Reliable workforce in the farm due to the structured incentivize employment with a proper growth ladder. 

Individual Farming

  • High investment cost for farm infrastructure 
  • Unreliable grid power in the semi-urban areas 
  • High maintenance and upkeep costs 
  • High costs to employ experts and having no knowledge systems in the diverse farm fields. 
  • High chances of getting run down if in-active for a small period of time. 
  • Maintenance of urban lifestyle in a rural setting does not satisfy all the age groups of a family

Where are we today?

Organo Naandi has been handed over to its rightful owners – the Organo Naandians. I

could not have run it as efficiently as they are collective. Moreover, I am proud of them. In

these testing times of COVID 19, all of them have proven themselves the ultimate drivers

and doers. The spirit of Organo Naandians is exemplary and for me, that is the biggest reward.

Sometime, last year the vision of developing more eco-habitats took its first turn and we

embarked on another exciting journey – Organo Antharam. Set in Chevella, the project has all the makings of yet another vibrant community.
