BHOOMI Organic and Terrace Gardening Workshop

BHOOMI is offering a one day workshop on
Organic and Terrace Gardening –
8th August 2015, Timings: 9:30 AM – 4:00 PM
Organic and Terrace Gardening
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.

What you can expect from the workshop?
This workshop will help you develop an enjoyable and healthful hobby, and make it a part of an organic way of life! There will be a focus on the practical aspects, so that we get a first hand experience with earth, soil, compost, nutrients on the field. It will include pest and disease management also.

Facilitator: I.M. Pushpa and Raghu Rao
