Growing your own food is relishing nature’s bounties within your home environment. If you are lucky enough to live in an apartment/bungalow with a garden space or balcony, you may be able to grow a garden in part of the space. Interestingly, garden growing in the city is not as hard as it sounds. Ironically it doesn’t require a lot of space. You can easily have a container garden on your balcony or window sill. You might be surprised what you can grow in a container from vegetables, herbs, salad dressings to fruits. Your gardening efforts will most likely yield more fresh produce than you can handle.
We will provide you virtual mentorship in establishing a kitchen garden at your place. The coursework will ensure that by end of the course we leave you with a functional and sustainable garden created just by you.
JOIN India's first crash course on kitchen gardening that is being offered through a virtual class. A blended course with project work and online assignments.
