Recently Consul General Olaf Iversen visited the Santal villages of Ghosaldanga and Bishnubati on Feb 6th, 2016, not far from Shantiniketan. Here the villagers are committed to the ecological production of fruit and vegetables. They also keep bees for the production of sweet honey and a fish pond. The highlight of the visit was the opening of a small shop where visitors can purchase the local groceries fresh on the spot.
