Abstract: The peasants have evolved ecological and economic sustainability in an agro‑forest‑ livestock management system centred on Grewia over centuries in central Himalaya. The report focuses on the communities residing in Kature valley in Central Himalaya, who have learnt to utilize the Grewia for a number of domestic uses. The system's sustainability has been achieved through knowledge of local ecological processes derived through traditional means. In the past, these models of resource utilization were sustainable on account of low biotic pressure, but now with the increase in population, these age-old practices, which were providing both economic and ecological sustenance, have started showing signs of redundancy being less economical.
