ABOUT US

The National Coalition for Natural Farming is a collaborative platform for accelerating the spread of agroecology-based farming practices in its multiple variants, improving on existing practices,  and advocating for policy change. 

“Natural Farming” is understood by us, as the direction and process of transition towards a more local, resilient, and adaptive agro-ecology based farming. 

Inception

The coalition was launched on 9th July, 2020 with a kickoff-meeting in which 66 organisations participated, including some nationally-esteemed personalities. The coalition is a result of wider discourse on exploring how natural farming could be established as a viable alternative to chemical farming, and scaled across the country through a massive civil society engagement.

The coalition is a result of a greater vision to protect food and seed sovereignty, regenerate the ecological balance, increase the biodiversity, and augment the nutritional security of individuals through inclusive, sustainable, and regenerative agroecological farming systems.

Guiding Principles

The coalition is building a movement towards making the farms and landscapes regenerative and productive. Some essential principles that guide our thinking and philosophy are:
