The touch of spring

The touch of spring
Since the opening in 2012 of the new permanent venue, Nature Bazaar at Andheria Modh, Dastkar (a Society for Crafts and Craftspeople) has expanded its marketing and awareness building efforts to include promoting natural products and environmental awareness.

Dastkar Green Mela also  provides a strong and diverse direct marketing platform for small producers and innovative new entrepreneurs to increase consumer awareness of eco-friendly practices like composting of kitchen waste, use of organic fertilizers, using solar energy and recycling electronic waste.

Participants at the mela will be offering a variety of organic honey, spices, herbs and preserves, along with rice, pulses, flour and many different teas. Fresh organic produce straight from the farm will be available too. Try out the natural, herbal or organic alternatives in sweetly scented soaps, scrubs and skin and hair oil formulas based on ancient medicinal knowledge.

Home products like bamboo and wood furniture, fine-weave grass mats, lamps, pottery, candles will be available along with paper products and eco-friendly jewellery using papier-mâché, clay, fibre or cloth. Along with some other great activities on offer, the Mela promises to be a lot of fun. Head over!
