Permaculture at Apani Dhani Ecolodge on a

Claude et Etienne, two French guests staying with our family in November, convinced us to start permaculture in our organic garden.

They helped and demonstrated how to prepare the three first beds for permaculture. Now use this technic on a large part of our vegetable garden.


Earthen oven

From plans we found on the Internet, we were able to build an earthen oven. Here below our first homemade wood-oven baked bread and baati, small balls of bread we eat with pulses in a traditional Rajasthani dish: Dhal Baati Churma. We also tried pizzas with vegetable from our garden, a success!
