CELEBRATING WORLD KITCHEN GARDEN DAY WITH FARM TALK, FRIENDS AND FOOD : 30TH AUGUST 2015


WORLD KITCHEN GARDEN DAY 2015
World Kitchen Garden Day is a day when kitchen gardeners of the world come together. The year round, we are busy ... sowing, planting, harvesting and nurturing our individual community-farms or home gardens. Since the last few years, we have seen our tribe growing in Mumbai and the time is right to evolve further. 

All of us who practise Urban Farming struggle with the initial step ... that of designing our farms ... whether we are on terraces/rooftops, open spaces and balconies or mobile gardens.

How do we make the best use of available space for optimum use and productivity? Can it be aesthetic and sustainable at the same time? As an urban farmer, how do I maintain harmony with nature, while I live mechanically in this mega city?
BEFORE: CLEA AT MBPT TERRACE


AFTER: NATURE TAKING ITS OWN COURSE AIDED BY US

AFTER: MEANDERING PATH ON THE URBAN FARM
Join us as we learn from our farmer friend, Clea Chandmal,
'How to do a Permaculture Design'.
Says Clea, “Sustainability is strongly linked to efficiency. In Permaculture, using laws of nature and strategies, we DESIGN systems to be efficient. The design process is what I will be describing. A good design and its implementation results in a sustainable and resilient, largely self-managing system.”

The talk will be followed by a delicious plant-based lunch by SHARAN.
