About This Blend

In the headwaters of the Ganges river basin, 1,500 metres up in India’s Kumaon Himalayas, chamomile production helps to improve incomes for a number of women-headed households. Pioneered by a group of women, the cultivation of the chamomile has provided an innovative approach in sustaining their livelihoods. Today, more than 100 farmers in 13 villages of the river basin are growing chamomile as a value-added crop and have earned solid additional farm income over the past few seasons.

Meet the Women

TRANSFORMING THEIR COMMUNITY
Meet Tulsi Devi, her daughter, Dhana, and the other women that have pioneered the cultivation of chamomile in India’s Kumaon Himalayas.

Tulsi and Dhana, both locals of Malla Satinaugaon, were lead farmers and spearheaded the first two trials of growing chamomile in their area. From Tulsi and Dhana’s success in growing chamomile, they were able to motivate 38 other women to incorporate chamomile into their cropping cycle.

Today, more than 100 farmers in 13 villages of the river basin are growing chamomile as a value-added crop and have earned solid additional farm income over the past few seasons.

"The women are ​​extremely strong and empowered, but in their society they are not recognized, discriminated against.”

PROGRAM COORDINATOR, TERGAR CHARITY NEPAL

According to the women, "being involved in the group has not only boosted our household income but has also given us an opportunity to engage with the world through chamomile."
