What you'll do

We will start the tour by introducing you to the simple concept of Permaculture and our zero waste philosophy. We will then take you through a guided walk in our forest where we will showcase some of our working models of waste management and our integrated farming system. We will then take you for a walk towards our lush cardamom fields and past a bamboo bridge over a gushing mountain stream to introduce you to our Earthy Dwelling - our natural building that is handcrafted by mostly using just mud, bamboo and stones. The guests are then free to enjoy the various spaces in our forest that appeal to their senses, from sitting by a waterfall to exploring our forest trails to discovering some more secrets of the forest. We will serve lunch at 13:30 hrs. It will be a treat of local cuisine and vegetables that are sourced from our forest farm or from other local organic farmers. If you would like to customize the whole experience as an evening one (15:00 hrs to 21:00 hrs.), pls let us know during the time of booking. We can also extend the experience to include a bonfire evening and stay in one of our accommodations (charges will be extra).

Utsow

I am the founder of Tieedi Forest Garden - a zero waste, regenerative permaculture forest in Darjeeling. After attaining a Permaculture Design Certification in 2016 I set off on this adventure to revive an acre of land molested with plastic waste and to transform it back into a rainforest. The quest for a more regenerative life has led us to grow our own food, and also research on the natural super foods that are indigenous to Darjeeling - one of the unique biodiversity hotspots of the world.

What's included

Food
A three course local meal prepared by using either the produce from our forest or by sourcing it from local organic farmers.…
Drinks
Tongba is an ancient drink of the Himalayas that is made by fermenting millets. It's nutritious and mildly alcoholic.
