“ I run a restaurant in bangalore. I also have a small stall-fed goat farm in katpadi,TN. This is on (short duration) leased land.I plan to buy my own farm land to shift my goats. I was very lucky to come across your web site, when i was searching for info on continuous contour trenches.
Sir, i am very particular to implement as many watershed practiceses on my farm land as possible.I need information & continuous updates. (i am a first time farmer). I am very excited bumping into your web site.”

“ Also, your web site was a BIG help to me. When being in Kazakhstan, one women asked me to provide a lecture in the secondary school for young.
The most attractive tool that came to my mind was to show them some video that is placed at The Water Channel. And it was a big success. And easy for me to start with the discussion with these kids!!! So, thank to your web site, I was able to attract the attention of young people to IWRM (it would be extremely difficult to explain them what is IWRM). Also, teachers found this channel very useful.”
