A thought-provoking decision to make Anad -grama Panchayat - a barren land free Panchayat in Thiruvananthapuram.
Easy to conceive, difficult to implement a number of hurdles to be crossed. On one hand, evaluation of land, its cultivability, or vegetables which can be, preparation of land etc, which involves money.
On the other hand, the reason for increasing barren land is one family's needs cannot come from agriculture, family members opting for jobs, away from the place of living.
To converge on the far-sighted aspiration Panchayat has plans to promote Cultivation in vacant lands, left free, inculcate Organic farming by individual households major component comes from roping in Kudumbasree workers, a strong major network in Kerala, with workers engaged in MG N R E G S, equally strong group and self-help groups to cultivate the barren lands.
Anad Panchayat if it can turn the leaf into a success it will be a new chapter in the history of the optimum utility of fertile land for cultivation.
Kerala has stood a role model to other states in the country, a feather into Kerala's Cap.
