KORAKUNDAH ORGANIC GARDEN CERTIFICATIONS:
At Korakundah, we follow the rules laid down in the book when it comes to producing organic tea. Pristine streams and virgin forests surround Korakundah, which is almost the crown of the Nilgiris. The air rings clear here and is absolutely pollution-free. We use natural processes and organic manure untouched by chemicals. Vermiculture, nature's own way of soil enrichment, is used extensively. Earthworms provide food for man by their beneficial effects on plant growth - aerating the soil, promoting drainage and drawing organic material into their burrows where it decomposes faster, thus producing more nutritive materials for growing plants. For improving and preserving soil conditions natural composts are developed on site.
