Organic food - free from pesticides or chemical fertilisers - is becoming increasingly popular among the farmers and health-conscious of Iran. It's the country's eventual aim to make a quarter of all agricultural goods organic. Tucked away in this small farm in Lavasan (a small town around 25 kilometres east of Tehran), farmer Hamidreza Hosseini is hard at work. He cultivates a wide range of organic products, including fruits and vegetables, all of which are completely free from pesticides and chemical fertilisers. "I produce almost 80 different kinds of agricultural goods," says the 57-year-old. "Including different kinds of cabbages, carrots, broccoli, tomatoes, pumpkins and a lot of others." Aside from growing fruits and vegetables for clients, Hosseini also experiments with dif...

http://facebook.com/invisusmundi We are traveling around the world for 4 months now. The last country we visited was Nepal. As we are budget travelers, we must save money as much as possible. The best way to do this in Nepal is volunteering. Volunteering in Asia countries gives you an opportunity to learn about other countries a lot. WWOOF volunteering in an organic farm was the best option for us, as we got a chance to live with Nepalese family, far away from touristic areas in a town called Shukranagar (Chitwan district). Food and accommodation were included. This short video is about doing some daily farm work (harvesting rice, taking care of farm animals) and spending time with Nepalese children, going to a Shukranagar school picnic. If you want to volunteer in Nepal too, you can find...
