The Baramati Agri Tourism project has a wide and direct impact, with 100% local involvement in over 350 agritourism centres in Maharashtra. About 80-85% of the profit is channelled directly to the villagers, who double as guides and travel operators, when they are not working in their farms, growing local produce organically, using harvested rainwater. All local sourcing is done within a 2 km radius.
