28th of August, 2014 saw a ‘Last Thursdays’ event with Mr. Prem Lama on organic farming at the Direction Exhibition and Convention Center (DECC) quarters where around 100 people listened to his ideas and experiences.
Mr. Lama is a self-made entrepreneur who has managed to become one of the premier names in organic farming in the country in about 12 years. He had no formal training in agriculture yet has more or less, managed to create a farming empire of sorts with around 200 acres of arable land in Kavre and locally leased farmlands in about 9 other districts. He believes that his success lies in the fact that he understands his responsibility towards his country and his countrymen and that he provides adequate labor-incentives. The journey from his school-teaching days to a leader of a growing enterprise is nothing short of inspiring.
