“Navdanya” means “nine crops” that represent India’s collective source of “food security”. The organization claims to have helped more than 200,000 farmers convert to organic agriculture while training another 500,000 farmers in organic practices. They mix their peasant farmer organic conversion support programs with political education and organizing programs in opposition to capitalism, free trade and any private sector for-profit role in society. Navdanya reports employing more than 100 paid staff and as many as 1,000 volunteers.  Navdanya reports being “born out of the vision to create alternatives to gigantism and centralization by building on the strengths of the small and decentralized” whose core elements are “seed distribution and research, fair trade networks, alternative education and knowledge networks (Swadeshi), mobilization and campaigning and advocacy and lobbying (Satyagraha) in the creation of radical space.”
