Fertile Ground is a Canadian NGO working in Assam, India. Our primary goal is to help farmers, tea growers and families grow healthy food and crops without relying on chemical inputs.

Fertile Ground's projects support and celebrate the culture and traditions of Assam, and we welcome volunteers and visitors to our demonstration garden and resource centre located in the town of Digboi, close to the Assam/Burma border.

This presentation was prepared by a group of young people from our community here in the Comox Valley who have raised money for school supplies and toys for children living in some of the remote villages Fertile Ground is working in.
