Faculty:
I.M. Pushpa and Raghu Rao

For whom: People who wish to grow and eat fresh organic veggies
Today, we hear of the importance of fresh greens and organic foods. Also the importance of avoiding chemical and pesticide ridden foods. What better place to get at least some wholesome foods than from your own backyard or terrace?

Gardening is the New Movement
This movement around the world is to transform this barren city-scape into a green and valuable contributor to health and ecological balance. Estimates show that as many as 20 million people are engaged in urban agriculture. China for instance produces 85% of its vegetables from the terraces, empty sites, unbuilt areas, etc
