Uravu has a bamboo nursery where people are engaged in growing bamboo shoots. They have an interesting way of getting their resources through the farmers in the community. Uravu takes the responsibility of providing the farmers with bamboo shoots of varied genres(species). They then sell these shoots to the farmers who grow them and when the time comes these bamboos are then sold back to Uravu for various products and construction works. It is a well balanced and self-sufficient system.
The farmers also face many difficulties in growing bamboo. One of them is the sugar content in bamboo which attracts the wildlife towards it. And Wayanad is wildlife in away. At night there are chances of wild pigs entering the fields in groups and then damaging the cultivation. The people there try to avoid facing these creatures as they might attack them when they try to stop them from doing so.
