As a boy, Dr. L. Narayana Reddy ran away from his parent’s home and lived and worked for years in cities. After he inherited a small piece of land in 1972, just outside bangalore, he decided to start farming. After Mr. Reddy received some magazines on organic farming in 1975 from a friend, he started to convert his farm to ecological agriculture.

Today Dr. Reddy is a legendary organic farmer and is one of the most sought after resource on ecological agriculture. He has set up a centre in Doddabalapur, near Bangalore, for experiential learning of organic farming. He now is an active promoter of organic bio-diverse farming at various Indian & international forums.
