|Navdanya started as a research programme at Research Foundation for science, Technology and Ecology (RFSTE) to help support and guide environment activists. Navdanya was born out of this quest to find non violent means to farming, especially through the protection of biodiversity and small farmers.|
|Navdanya means Nine Crops, which collectively represent India’s food security.
Navdanya’s mission is to support local farmers, rescue and conserve crops and plants that are being pushed to extinction and make them available through direct marketing.
The founder, Ms Vandana Shiva (right) is a reknowned international environmental activist who initiated local seed saving and is fighting tirelessly against giant corporates like Monsanto.
