Sikkum is a small Indian State in the Himalayas.
For 25 years, Vandana Shiva’s organization, ‘Navdanya International,’ worked in tandem with visionary local government leaders. Together, they shepherded a remarkable agricultural transition which dedicated itself to converting Sikkum to 100% organic production.
Now, that quarter-century conversion to 100% organic production has come to fruition. What’s more, the Sikkum model has been designed to be exportable to help other regions.
Recently, a delegation from Sikkum traveled to Italy to share their success with the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO).
The Sikkum story is related here, including a good video (1:47) by Vandana herself. Jim
“Vandana Shiva: ‘Join hands with Sikkum. Sikkum leads the way to 100% organic work that is Pesticide-Free, Poison-Free, Plastic-Free. Free of conflicts, free of violence, free of crime.'”
