On Thursday,i.e. 15.12.2011, we have visited a horticultural farm developed by SAMBANDH, a not for profit organisation, at a place near Cuttack. One can reach this farm by traveling past Charbatia and arriving at the outskirt of village Kochila Nuagaon. It is almost 40 kilometers away from Cuttack. A large number of saplings of mango, lemon etc. are produced each year and are supplied to NABARD. The farm also houses a good training centre which provides training to local people regarding management of natural resources.
There is also one ayurvedic product manufacturing unit that uses medicinal plants procured by local people. It also encourages organic farming for vegetables which command premium prices.
The sales outlet situated inside the farm provides good number of ayurvedic products to the visitors.

World wide web provides new platform for collaborative project execution and continuous monitoring. I have created a wiki site for online collaboration of students and faculties of Department of Mechanical Engineering, ABIT Cuttack. One can access the wiki at mechanical-abit.wikispaces.com for more information. This type of free wiki site is a good place to go virtual for experimental purpose.
