We all love Laal Saag or Red Spinach. Fried with mustard oil and some peanuts this is a delicacy in Bengal. But most of the veggies we consume are laced with highly toxic chemicals. TONA Organic Red Spinach is a good source of vitamins C and A, iron and other essential minerals, besides being low in calories. To prevent the loss of nutrients it’s best if they are not overcooked but added right in the end while making soups and stews.
Tona Red Spinach can improve digestion, kidney function, anemia, immunity, weight management, greying of hair, hair fall and eyesight.

An annual economic survey conducted recently said changes in climate could shrink agricultural income by as much as 25% in unirrigated farmland and 18%in irrigated areas by 2100 in India.

At Tona, one of out primary goals is to lower the cost of farming and bring down the cost of organic farming. One of the ways we achieve this is by using vertical urban farming. Land shortage, especially with hostile takeovers by large corporates has been plaguing India in the last decade. Urban Vertical Farming reduces the requirement of land by enabling using of a single square feet of land to produce multiple products.
We went one step further and started using discarded plastic drums and bins as pots. The water comes from our ponds using Aquaponics. Here is a small sample of our rooftop vegetable garden.
The great indian jugaad is something that I believe is an epitome of innovative thinking. Once simply cannot ignore how day to day problems are solved rather easily and most effectively. In Tona our primary focus is in lowering cost of health organic food production. without sacrificing quality. The reason is simple, if it's not affordable, the majority population of the world would not be able to benefit from healthy organic food.
So among many things we have implemented one of them is reusing plastic waste to create vertical farming systems. Yes they dont look good but what they produce is real natural good stuff!
Sharing some of the pictures here...
Let's shun impressive costly ways to actually bring benefit to the million who dont get proper healthy nutrition.

A vertical system of urban agriculture is now becoming very popular across the world. With land availability a problem vertical farming allows you to produce organic super food at your home in a city.
Many companies are using this technique. But we have noticed that their products are very costly making is unviable for consumers across all spectrums to enjoy the benefit of chemical free organic food.
Also most farms are focused on vegetable production where as TONA has created a model for both vegetable and meat cultivation.
The secret to making the products from urban vertical farming lies in nature. Remove the costly LED lights, posh looking buildings, expensive adverts and see how much it positively impacts in cost reduction.
Good plantation practice only needs proper air, heat, light and water with nutrition. Any media(soil, sand, water, even air) which can hold water with nutrition, can grow plants correctly. Day-to-day family waste can be the feed for chicken or turkey or quail. Their waste is a good source of fish. Fish waste is converted to plant nutrient by some bacterias like nitrosococus, nitrosomonus and bioreactor.
TONA is helping many individuals and companies take up this sustainable GHG free vertical farming practice.

Water Hyacinth is an invasive plant that farmers hate. Atleast that's the modern belief. We challenged this belief and wanted to use this pest as an ingredient in the organic cycle.
Tona, our organic farm, is producing animal feed from Water Hyacinth or Kochuripana, otherwise a plant known for its invasive 'pesky' tendency through its innovative farming practice. The rooftop gardening of this zero-priced zero-maintenance plant also is a natural cooling agent...keeping our units and room cool.... This also helps in Tona's zero waste production model since normally these plants are removed and they rot producing waste... harmful Greenhouse Gases (GHGs)... The nitrate content in this plant is actually what our cows love when mixed with other fodder.
Tona believes Organic Food should be Affordable and not marked up as they are done now so that it's not only the uber elite who can afford it... Tona is now looking for funding to grow this model to a large scale and enter the market big time and affect more poor/tribal/under-developed villages by developing such replicas across India and maybe other poorer nations.

There is a lot of debate on the utility of cow in India. Apart from being a farming aid and source of milk there are many other utilities of a cow. While cow dung is an organic cooking fuel its urine does have far reaching results when used properly.
