The Green Bazaar- 9

The much loved Green Bazaar is back with its 9th Edition! This time, The Green Bazaar- 9 partners with Whitefield Rising to you the Whitefield Eco Habba on Sunday, February 22nd, at Herbs and Spices, Whitefield.
Traffic, water, garbage, toxic lakes…Whitefield has many of the same teething problems as other neighbourhoods in rapidly expanding Bangalore, but it is also home to a strong network of true heroes who care for their neighbourhood and work to make it better. Tree-huggers, lake-saviours, spot-fixing civic activists, composting-queens, animal-rescuers, craft goddesses, geek-turned-kitchen-gardeners—the community has champions of every stripe. Come say hello to them at Eco Habba, the largest community gathering of its kind, and get inspired! Join the movement for a better Bangalore and start your own in your neighbourhood.
Spend this lovely springtime Sunday outdoors, at The Green Bazaar- 9, Eco Habba and take a break from the usual mall-movie routine. Buy earth friendly products, attend expert talks, sign up for DIY workshops, watch your kids participate in learn and play activities, sample yummy, healthy food, watch films, live performances and join the conversation around vibrant, sustainable, earth friendly living in Whitefield!
