Tamil Nadu Iyarkai Velan Koottamaipu (TNIVK) is a collective working on promoting organic agriculture in Tamil Nadu. The collective has organic farmers, civil society organisations, farmer producer organisations, social enterprises, academic institutions, activists, women's groups, individual experts in organic farming, seed conservator groups and consumer organisations etc.   

What do we stand for?

  • Farmer’s well-being especially women and small farmers
  • Safe Food and Nutritional security for all 
  • Embrace diversity of crops, farm practices and farmers
  • Decentralisation and Localisation of markets
  • Environmental sustainability

Working Groups

A consistent and systematic approach is needed to carry the organic agriculture movement forward. By creating multi-disciplinary, collectively-functioning flat structures, TNIVK is hoping that the existing expertise and talent within Tamil Nadu can be properly harnessed in this field. Thematic (functional) Working Groups have been formed with their respective convenors to take up various activities for promotion of organic agriculture.
