We will be popping out from the forest to participate in this awesome initiative, 'The Sunday Haat' at Siliguri on the 27th of January.
For the first time ever, Tieedi would be retailing its own products and of the organic farmers from our village directly to the conscious consumers. If you are nearabouts do drop by to wish us luck on our first retailing foray.
Muchos Gracias to Himalayan Organic Life for the invite! :) ... See more
#thesundayhaat starting from 27th Jan. 2019. A humble initiative for a holistic health and sustainable natural and organic way of life.
When we built (read: handcrafted) our Earthy Dwelling we travelled the road not taken. With no prior experience but driven by a passion to nurture nature we went about the task brick by brick. Oops! Sorry, Bamboo by Bamboo is more appropriate. Of course, it helped to have a great team of local craftsman who shared our passion.
As we bamboo-storm towards crafting another Earthy Dwelling this year, it helps to know that the niches our forest dwelling has won the hearts of the travellers and artists.
Preeti, an architect and a bamboo lover, is also an immensely talented artist. Check out some of her work https://www.instagram.com/samanilai/

It's the small details like these that make me fall completely in love with places, people and experiences.

We are excited to be launching a new AirBnB 'Experience' in our forest garden. Yup! you now have the opportunity to immerse yourself in a permaculture forest without having to stay overnight (though we would be happy to host you too!).
The Experience has been curated for folks looking to know more about sustainability practices that you can implement in your everyday life, wherever you are. If you have children, whom you would want to introduce these simple concepts to, we can even customize the Experience to cater to your special needs.
O! and did we mention about a sumptuous organic meal and a complimentary Tongba over a simmering bonfire! :)
Come! Experience Us! ... See more

Folks, our village has had a bumper harvest of Yacon (Ground Apple) this year. This wonder food is now acclaimed across the world as being medicinal for people suffering from diabetes and blood pressure related ailments. We are taking an initiative now to help them get the right price for their produce. It is available in various supermarkets and cities for Rs. 250 to 300/kg but the farmers here are getting a paltry sum that hardly compensates for the effort they put in to grow it organically.
We are working on bringing together all organic farmers in our village under one co-operative so that their interests are protected and more importantly they get respected for 'growing food'. This will take sometime to materialise as we work towards getting them organic certified through a respectable agency. For now, if any of you good folks out there want a slice of the goodness of 'Himalayan Yacon' we are marketing it for them @ Rs. 120/kg to ensure that this year's harvest does not go to waste.
Pls contact us through DM or @ 91-8250612067 for orders. Here are some interesting links for you to explore to know more about this wonder food:

Yacón aka Ground Apple aka Smallanthus sonchifolius is highly nutritious, edible tuber.
Native to the Andes in South America, it is now popular across the world as a super food for diabetic folks. Yacón syrup and Yacón tea (made using the dried leaves of this plant) is touted to control your blood sugar level. The tuber can be eaten raw, boiled or even dried.
It strangely is also closely related to the sunflower family of plants. Scroll left to see its tiny flowers that bear an uncanny resemblance to the 🌻.
This is our first ever harvest of Yacón at Tieedi after we planted it early this spring. All of us here were found slurrrpping when Aashna whipped up a salad with farm greens, Yacón and her own mix of secret ingredients. :)
What interests us though is the claim of Bada, our village elder, who says there used to be a very similar plant around this region called 'Kachhu' that gave similar edible tubers. We are now in lookout for own Himalayan Yacón. Any info on that plant would be much appreciated.
