BE A PART OF THE GREEN TRANSFORMATION


“What is this life if, full of care,

We have no time to stand and stare.

No time to stand beneath the boughs

And stare as long as sheep or cows.

No time to see, when woods we pass,

Where squirrels hide their nuts in grass.

No time to see, in broad daylight,

Streams full of stars, like skies at night.

No time to turn at Beauty's glance,

And watch her feet, how they can dance.

No time to wait till her mouth can

Enrich that smile her eyes began.

A poor life this if, full of care,

We have no time to stand and stare “

---- William Henry Davies


Doesn't this poem which we all learnt in our school days ring true to our ears today? In the fast paced lives we live today we have lost our bond with Mother Nature.  We long for long lost gardens and green spaces in the concrete jungles of Mumbai, we long for pure and safe food for us and our loved ones, we long for the pure and unadulterated joy of playing with  soil……

Do you want to be a part of a dream which envisions green food forests and farms on terraces and spaces spread all across Mumbai? Do you want learn the magic of transforming this Grey



INTO this Green?




and PRODUCTIVE one?



Then join us to give wings to our dreams and be a part of this transformation which will not only transform spaces but will also transform you……
