Gco is passionately developing an integrated horticulture farm at Bedian Road Lahore. This farm belongs to Haji Yousaf. For the last many years his farm was at loss and costing around six lacs per annum. The farmer contacted so many experts to help him out but no body could help. GCO accepted this challenge and decided to work on this model farm. Haji Yousaf shared his dream with the president of GCO Mr. Shafiq that he was interested to enhance his farm income up to five lacs per acres per annum. .
The team of relevant experts worked day and night on the initial plan and discussed with Haji yousaf and staff. After their approval now the work has been started. The land was prepared first and now ready for plantation.
Total Land 8 ACRES
Location Bedian Road Village Keel
It was decided that to enhance the income of farm it is necessary to set the farm in the following way.
Rose Plantation 1 Acre
Moringa Plantation 1-2 Acre
Papaya Plantation integrated with melons (Plantation will start at the end of foggy season)
Addition of animal and birds like ostrich, peacock, special hen, goats etc.
Though this is not a Permaculture garden but similar in a sense that in a small area our experts are trying to create an eco bio garden. We will keep you updated with each and every step of farm development .

Gco team along with their CEO Mr. Shafiq visited Bedian road farm to follow up the plantations there. They became happy to find that the work is going great and soon the farm will be full of red roses, papaya trees, nursery plants and other greenery. They also presented the popular mixed pickles (product of GCO) to Haji Yousaf and in exchange haji yousaf also gave sweet and ripe farm fresh guavas to Mr. Shafique. So the recent visit was not only satisfactory but also fun.
