Narsanna Koppula has an 11.5-acre perma-farm in Telangana. There are no neat rows, trees coexist with shrubs. As with most such farms, there’s also a small water body built in, home to fish. He keeps bees. The fish make the water nutrient-rich for the plants; the bees help in pollination. Here, he shows enthusiasts around during a permaculture design course.(Sneha Koppula)
