OUR CONCEPTS :
You will experience the integrity of nature in Munkudil Retreat. The elegant "Kannur" stone work conveys the real sense of solidity, permanence and beauty. The thick mud walls constructed in the lower level keeps the sun outside and cools inside.
Start with local Indian cow and bull(kasaragod dwarf pair) is the main centre of the theme. Here our land is totally chemical free, and architecture more than 75% from natural materials. Coming to land and vegetation first, the cow dung from the local Indian cows are rich in microorganisms(more than 100 times than modern breeds), which is the main feed to land is chemical free, there is no green house gas emissions and hence no ozone layer weakening.
~ HOW COWS THE CENTRAL THEME ~
The cow dung and urine goes to a bio-gas plant as well, which gives cooking gas for kitchen. Slurry and separated cow dung to plants, and urine is processed to give plants as pesticides.. Urine of cow is distilled and used as a cleaning agent as well. Plants receives cow dung, slurry and dead leaves as food, and that plants and grass, back to food for cows.
~ ZERO WASTAGE PLAN ~
This is one of our prime considerations, and still working on to meet that wastage as output and no stuff to buy from market, kind of a self sustaining are seriously working for betterment, and planning to get lease lands, for own vegetation sustainability and so on.
~ BEE COLONY ~
It aides to pollination in flowers and thereby better crop in the land. Bees collect honey from the forest, so we get the one of the most nourishing food; we get from have a better way of maintaining bees, which gives even a better quality Concentrating on small things always counts.
~ BUTTERFLY PARK ~
Its another way of promoting pollination and the yield of crops. Butterflies shows a healthy symbol of the land and adds beauty and healing for eyes.
~ ZEN GARDEN ~
Zen gardening comes from Japan and it’s widely used by Japanese Monks for meditation purpose. The theory of ZEN garden is that rocks and rock bed used here, reflects energy in the daytime especially during sunlight. A hut is made in the middle and person sitting there gets a concentration of energy.

~ AQUAPONICS ~
Using the fish waste of aquarium fishes, old garbage fridge boxes, old gravel, old broken clay tiles and PVC pipes, which was garbage after construction here, it was able to create one cent of land in air for organic fresh developed land cost here is approx Rupees 5 lack per cent and all we spent is just Rs. 25000/- (around 38$) for the start we make fresh and healthy vegetables from waste material platform.
