The development of the village of Gureghar, comprising around 70 families, between 1971 and 1985, is a case-study in itself. It started out with 12 persons working as permanent employees at the Gureghar fruit processing unit, with the rest into subsistence farming. But for them too, there was hope.

They started growing strawberries, with technical guidance from Mapro, and today the region has the highest produce of strawberries in all of India, one of the major catalysts for the manifold increase in tourist inflow over time. All these achievements have been through sustainable means, keeping the regions ecology in mind.
