WHY ARE WE PROMOTING URBAN FARMING?
Urban farming is the need of the hour for green reasons like :
Mumbai is blessed with ample of sunlight and space, yes u heard it right space- every rooftop or terrace is unused at present and has the potential to harvest sunlight to the maximum by growing our food and thus have cooling benefits to the structure as well. Its high time we need to start making optimum utilization of empty city spaces like rooftops, balconies, window sills & compounds. There is no better way to harvest the sunlight than this.
VISION - Is to spread awareness about Urban Farming on a platform where all possible information will be available free of cost to people, thus making it simple for even a beginner to understand & maintain their individual window sill, balcony or terrace garden - whether it is vegetables, herbs, fruits, ornamentals or medicinal plants. Alongwith, information we wish to create a platform where people get access to buying everything related to gardening at one place from the various participating nurseries, stores offering a wide range of gardening accessories like planters, pots ,soil, compost, waterproofing consultants, landscapers & much more.
For all those who have zero resources available for growing food can switch to our separate section for organic vegetables, groceries, eco-friendly and other natural products. There will be exclusive brands showcasing their exquisite range of organic and natural products.
