Pokkali - A story of resilience

(1 Reviews )


clock8 hours


    Pokkali farming is a unique community-based initiative to preserve and conserve a one of its kind, saline-tolerant strain of rice, threatened by extinction. In a stunning backwater setting, this tour gives an opportunity to understand one of the oldest known crops cultivated through a symbiotic farming tradition involving rice and prawn culture. Pokkali is known for its tolerance to salinity and hence positioned as a climate change resistant food. To reach the Pokkali backwaters area, we will join the locals as they take the ferry from Kochi to Vypeen. From there, it is an hour's drive.

    The day excursion's highlights include:

    Local ferry ride
    Visit the village Agri-Service center, and walk through the village
    Farm visit and interaction with a farmer who sustains the tradition against many constraints
    Interactive cooking and lunch with the women of the village.
