The Jadan Ashram has a long term project of reforestation. To date approximately 200,000 trees have been planted in a bid to 'turn the desert green'. The Ashram's organic farm aims to be a model for the local area, as local farmers tend to use pesticides heavily.Research is ongoing for the production of natural pesticides from the local Neem tree. The Ashram produces organic vegetables, wheat, corn, barley and various seeds & spices. This can be difficult land to cultivate especially when the monsoon fails year after year.
