The farmer-designed training program has been created by farmers and Herb Nepal, an IDEO.org award winning organic herb farm and training centre based in Bhaktapur, Nepal. The program works with Nepalese farmers to bring organic, sustainable land-use and herbal processing back to poor rural communities. This results in beautifully handmade products, made in Nepal that bring essential benefits to farming communities and local ecosystems.
Herb Nepal is committed to organic farming methods using Permaculture principles; which is a way of working with nature and not against it, resulting in a more sustainable environment and using fewer resources. It is guided by the ethics of earth‐care, people‐care and fair‐share. These ethics reflect equally the guiding values of Herb Nepal.we provide

Koseli in Nepali means ‘gift’. This is exactly what these products are, gifts from farmers across Nepal. These products have been made using organic herbs that have been grown, cultivated and processed by small-scale farmers in Nepal. The farmers are trained in organic, sustainable land-use and herbal processing.
Our products directly support the continuation of our innovative farmer training program. It enables our farm to do more, to reach more farmers and to maximise our impact.discover more
The Farm Stays promise you a unique, relaxing and rejuvenating village learning experience. They bring you closer to nature and wildlife while staying in a peaceful rural farming community. The Herb Nepal team is eager to create a family space that allows children to play and parents to relax.
The design of Herb Nepal, Koseli (our herbal products), and our farmer training program have always revolved around the idea that it is locally rooted and community based. So, the farm stays have been designed using the same principle.
The Farm Stays are sustainably built and are state-of-the-art with the use of the natural building technique, Rammed Earth. Built to be safe, durable and earthquake resilient by Rammed Earth Solutions. This creates a healthy and beautiful living environment. On the farm we make use of passive solar energy and water is taken directly from it source and naturally filtered to make it safe to drink.see more
