Activities of Kudumbam

Genesis

Kudumbam was founded in 1982 by Mr. Oswald Quintal, Dr.Nammalvar and Mr.Perianayagasamy when rural Tamil Nadu, India was passing through an agricultural crisis. The trade-off from the "Green revolution" in the 1960s led to a shift in land use from diverse cropping systems, to monocultures with heavy application of chemical pesticides and fertilizers. Irrigation slowly led to the depletion of ground water, and small farmers becoming more marginalized.
