Visually impaired reap fruits of green labour

Kozhikode: Overcoming the handicap of blindness, a band of visually challenged are engaged in organic farming in subarban Kundayithode. From sowing to watering to reaping eighteen inmates of the skill centre for sight impaired take care of the entire operations. The inspiration for this venture was when they ran up high debt with the neighbourhood grocer. They cleared a patch of land which had gone to weed and started planting ladies finger, string beans, brinjals and spinach. They recognise the vaious crops through feeling leaves and fruits. Local social workers, Prabhakaran, Preman and Pramod act as their guides. The enterprising bunch is amazed at the fruits of their green labour.
