About 60% of Hoskote is covered by eucalyptus trees which is an concern for depleting ground water. Currently ground water is available above 1500 ft.
Acre Foundation is helping farmers to completely remove the eucalyptus trees and replace with the other trees which is helpful in rejuvenating the ground level water
Once called “A paradise for bird lovers”
Total No. of Lakes in Hoskote Taluk: 168 (as per government records)
Out of which only Three are operative
Non-Operative/Dry: 165 (completely or partially)
Our initiative has already started to restore the Sasalu village lake with the help of Villagers and local Govt. We have cleaned up the lake and channels with the help of JCB’s. Awaiting for the good monsoon to fill the lake.
Acre Foundation is Committed to restore these lakes in coming days.
Reduced ground level water has lead farmers towards excessive use of chemicals & fertilizers to sustain their livelihood un aware of the side effects of chemical farming. For both the farmer and the consumer .
Acre Foundation is working towards converting Hoskote Taluk into Organic zone by 2025.
Farmers have been traditionally selling their produce through the middlemen & traders. This has lead to low pricing sale of agricultural products to the middle man who intern make most of the profit.
ACRE Foundation is looking at creating an sustainable avenue for the the Farmer’s wherein they can sell their produce directly to the consumer hence ensuring them a fair share of income.
ACRE’s & Hoskote’s 1st Farmers Market @ ATTUR is coming Soon
