A mini-workshop on starting your own kitchen gardening, join our two-hour virtual workshop on Google Meet

Introduction 

TOP 3 REASONS why you should grow your own food?
The pandemic times is rather an unusual time yet appropriate time to grow your own food. 

  1.  We have reduced our trips to markets. Even if you love to have fresh leafy vegetables everyday, you are forced not to venture out. So how about growing some microgreens on your window sill.
  2.  We have ample time on hand inspite of WFH and being with family, so as well invest in starting a new hobby such as gardening.
     
  3. These are testing times, when we are forced keep ourselves calmer and be assertive and gardening is best activity of stress busting.

With this premise, we have designed a Virtual Kitchen Gardening Workshop for you on the eve of International Day of Biological Diversity. We will be celebrating the theme of Agrobiodiversity.
