Grow Your Own Food (GYOF) is a series of workshops organised by Swechha, with the primary objective of encouraging and empowering every urban dweller to grow their own food, be it on their kitchen window, their small balcony in their apartment, a modest terrace or even their front lawn. Indeed, the idea is not to grow in tonnes and quintals, but to soil your hand, see basic vegetable and herb supplies grow in front of you, and also to understand what it takes to grow food. Each one of us can grow! The workshop is a mix of DIY, agricultural and agrarian contexts, and understanding sustainability hands-on!
We will be exploring and learning different potting techniques, from drum towers (one that grows over 20 veggies in a 2 ft X 2 ft space!), crate farming, kettle farming, etc.
This guided tour is free and specially curated for children from the Magic Bus Foundation.
