Call to recapture farming culture

Onam Organic Mela, organised by Jaiva Jeevitham, the CPI(M)-steered organic farming commune, and featuring organic farm produce for the festive season, was opened by Tourism Minister Kadakampally Surendran at Rajendra Maidan, Kochi on Friday.

Organic vegetable produce, rice, and eggs are sold at the mela.

Besides, self-help groups and cooperatives have set up 30 stalls to make available almost everything needed for the season.
