8 weeks to becoming a kitchen gardener

I need not go bustling to the busy street,
To garnish my salads with a touch of green,
I need not borrow from my next door neighbours,
To season my goodies with missing flavours.
The little farm in my window gives me all I need,
Pinch me so I know it’s not a dream…….

  1. Dear Team,

    This is Amit here, I'm a newbie and am interested in attending the session tomorrow. could you please let me know the address of the Maharashtra Nature Park. A Google search showed that the address is:
    Maharashtra Nature Park,
    Near Dharavi Bus Depot,
    Opp. P.M.G.P. Colony,
    Dharavi, Mumbai 400 017.

    Is this the right address? I'll be coming from Kalyan via train. Could please give me directions to reach the place.


  2. The address is correct Amit. The nearest stations are Sion and Mahim. Once you reach there take an auto to the Park. Its opposite the Dharavi Bus Depot. Enter from Gate no 3.
