ABOUT US

We are involved in learning and sharing knowledge on sustainable practices 

We enrich communities by practicing, teaching and promoting urban organic farming in Mumbai & Navi Mumbai. 

Today, urban folks are generally cut off from nature in their day to day life. Since ancient times, farming and growing one’s own food has been a default part of every single person’s life. But circumstances have rendered it impossible for modern urban lives to have this direct connection with their food and mother earth. And this basic life skill is lost to our younger generation completely.

 

Besides, excessive use of pesticides, environmental degradation caused by chemical farming, the mounting problem of organic waste in cities, malnutrition due to low quality of food, are all pressing challenges we face.

So what better way to address all these issues than through a sustainable, fun and natural way – urban organic food gardening!!

We are involved in learning and sharing knowledge on sustainable practices. This is achieved through training workshops, volunteering opportunities, school programmes, corporate programmes, housing society workshops, consultancy and setting up of kitchen gardens.
