What is Urban Farming? Urban Farming is the practice of growing vegetables, fruits and herbs in your own apartment in the city. You can plant trees on the roof tops, balcony or terrace producing natural food items that are free from chemicals. You can use faised beds, containers and hanging baskets to create a small farm even in a confined space.

Why Urban Farming ?

Food safety has become a major cause of concern in India today. Dangerous toxins in food, such as pesticides, agrochemicals, antibiotics, hormones, repening chemicals, chemical additives and flavors routinely appear in residue testing done by Government and independent agencies. Lack of healthy, nutritious, safe organic food is seen to have major health implications leading to a rapidly rising burden of diseases. In this context, urban and roof-top farming is seen as a attractive and viable solution for people living in Kolkata to grow vegetables, fruits and herbs.
