New Delhi: When it comes to growing your own gardens, a Mumbai resident has found a solution.
As the temperature drops, the humidity drops and the air gets cool, said Shanti Ramakrishna, founder of the Maharashtra Gardens Association.
The Mumbai resident, who does not want to be identified, has been growing his own vegetables and fruits in his backyard in the city’s Ranga Ratnagiri area.
He is also making his own fertiliser and water, using his own tools and materials.
He said the main obstacle in growing his gardens is the lack of space.
The area is very small.
Ramakrim has decided to take on a more radical approach.
“The space is my main concern,” he said.
The garden, which he started three years ago, consists of about 40 square meters.
Ramkrishna is one of the owners of the association, which has grown organic vegetables in the past.
“In a city like Mumbai, where you have people living in apartments, you need to have space for them to grow their own food,” he added.
“If the area is small, it is difficult for people to do that.
We want to grow vegetables that are available in our area.
Our goal is to provide quality food for our neighbours.”
Ramakrishn has set up the association and set up a website to help people find a garden, with a goal of opening 20 gardens in the next three years.
The association’s main aim is to help local farmers who do not have space to grow produce.
