Jaivik Vigyan Kendra (JVK)
Centre for Sustainable and Organic Farming (C-SOF)
The idea for the farm started in 2015, when we bought a 8.5 acre farm in Kollatti village of Denkanikottai, Tamil Nadu. In 2020, administrative block and accommodation was inaugurated. The Centre is a model organic farm and training centre and is open for visitors.
We have conducted several training programmes on organic agriculture and agribusiness at the centre for farmers, entrepreneurs, students, government officials and others.
Other organisations can also have their team trainings or meets at the farm.. We have a fully equipped training hall that can accommodate a group of 25-30 people.
For upcoming training follow our Social Medias
We have stay packages and day trips where one can witness farm life, learn about organic and sustainable farming, involve in various farm activities, taste fresh and healthy organic food or just relax and rejuvenate amidst nature.

Biovillage - Improving livelihoods
ICCOA initiated a unique concept of bio village that goes beyond just organic farming and certification. The model aims to increase the farmer’s income and living standards by integrating seven other components such as agriculture/ horticulture, animal husbandry, production of organic inputs, biogas units, basic processing facilities, rural entrepreneurs, Agri, and eco-tourism. The farmers and entrepreneurs will take up these activities within the village, thereby reducing the costs of farming inputs, processing centers, marketing and enhancing marketing opportunities
Rural entrepreneurs are encouraged to start community compost units, primary processing centers, which will provide employment to the village youth. Farm stays and homestays are becoming popular with eco-tourism initiatives and this will be leveraged to supplement the income of the farmer. The bio village model aims to build self-sufficient communities using sustainable organic farming practices.
