BE AN URBAN FARMER!
2-Day Workshop on Urban Farming
(Urban Farming Basics + Virtual Tour)
India is known as an agricultural country, a statement that we have been listening to since our school days. When it comes to farming the first image that comes to our mind is huge fields in a village. The crops move around with the wind and the wind carries a distinct scent of the earth. The taste of freshly grown food just hits different. But with rapid urbanisation, fresh food is becoming difficult to be procured and thus directly impacting one’s health. To overcome this, urban farming is one of the many solutions.
The Nature’s Eye presents a 2-day workshop on Urban Farming. Urban farming is the practice of growing food in and around cities. It goes hand in hand with sustainable living and is accompanied by activities such as composting, it can result in zero-waste living. Urban farming has proven itself to eliminate food insecurity in urban areas and provide organic and fresh food.

Forager Farms is a project that started because of the concern of rising food insecurity and the global environmental crisis. The project was designed as a solution to waste of terrace space in cities, carbon emission of food transportation, lack of protein-dense food in common people's diets, water crisis and whatnot. After years of pondering over these issues, they created a design of an agriculture unit that can be set up in cities, use non-functioning land assets, grow multiple good commodities, imitate natural cycles, and become a solution to multiple environmental issues.
