Education for a Healthier and Sustainable
Starting to “REBUILD” and promote healthier, eco-friendly, and profitable agriculture among local communities is paramount to ensure global food security and to decelerate the speed of current environmental destruction leading to multifaceted-interlinked catastrophic consequences as global warming, climate change, diminishing biodiversity, increasing food scarcity, etc. NANURA is a learning platform promoting sustainable agriculture techniques to beginners in a simple and a motivating manner.
Remember, the process of sustainable agriculture is not a new science to us. Simply, just an important part of humanity that is forgotten and neglected through recent generations to a point that resulting outcomes are warning our own existence. Traditional farmers (or as producers of food, textiles, and other agriculture-based products) practiced eco-friendly and healthier agriculture for thousands of years around the world. Then, the industrial revolution, capitalistic profit-based global economy, and growing gap between supply and demand due to rising world population led to modern unsustainable mass production concept. However, “it is yet not too late”. As a key step, let’s begin to build healthier agriculture systems at individual and community levels in both urban and rural areas around the world. NANURA Agriculture, by Dona Nalaka Daundaratne and her team of educators, is a starting point to learn about how to plan, develop and manage your own profitable, healthier, environment-friendly, and socially acceptable food production that will help your family, community and the world. Therefore, we welcome you and thank for taking a valuable step to learn about farming with our dedicated team.
NANURA Agriculture was developed in 2014 as a rural agriculture development project to help improve sustainable agriculture focused on several countries of South Asia and Eastern Africa. It aims on reaching communities in remote or underdeveloped areas where either ongoing farming that can be further improved or communities with potentiality to start agriculture projects with proper guidance and support.
What is ‘sustainable farming’? Since ages, the stability of life on earth, in connection to our impact over it, is determined by the quality of maintained balance between us and nature, and the corresponding environmental responses. Basically, our deeds decide the fate of our lives, state at present, safety of future, and consequential health of Mother-nature and vice-versa. In relation, sustainable agriculture is following sound and eco-friendly farming practices as a continuum in a productive and a beneficial manner for self, communities, and health of ecosystems. Importantly, resulting outcomes should not incur harm or negatively impact on both current and future generations regarding wellbeing, continuity, and safety of life.

For example, they provide milk, beef, butter, cheese, leather, fertilizers, helps to plow to prepare ground for cultivation
