Urban Leaves conducted their first workshop in April 2009 at Maharashtra Nature Park.The first workshop had 30 participants.Every workshop thereafter saw number of enthusiasts rising and an amazing mixture of backgrounds from which they came from.
Teachers, surgeons, lawyers, Engineers, Architects, Home makers, chefs, businessmen, school children.....
you name them, and they were there.
What have been the results of these workshops? Were they effective? Were they fulfilling what they had set out to achieve? Or Did the long drawn process of making Amrut Mitti, handling of cow dung, cow urine, the long wait of 63 days in various stages of greening was putting these city dwellers ( who had as seen a virtual Farmville life ) off ?
This month, we start a series of our stories about Urban Leaves Volunteer Efforts covered by yet another volunteer and 'Super mom Journalist' Anu Shankar.
I call her Super Mom not because she is able to do hundreds of things, but because I have seen the wonderful way in which she is raising her child. Check out her blog Wandering Mind
The first terrace she covers belongs to Vipul Sanghvi. She selected his terrace first as it is still in the process of making Amrut Mitti and can be used to showcase various stages of same on a terrace.
