Spring may be the proverbial season for cleaning but autumn is shaping up to be the season of planting your own vegetables as Urban Leaves hosts a series of workshops about starting and maintaining your own kitchen garden.
The ground is speckled with leaves of yellow, red and brown, the air is that tiniest bit crisper and the days are slowly getting shorter. Yes, autumn is in full swing and with BioFach India just around the corner, the time to learn more about growing your own vegetables could not be better.
The team over at Urban Leaves are hosting a suite of events over the next few weeks to encourage everyone to try their hand at growing their own vegetables whether it be on their windowsill, terrace or rooftop.
The upcoming workshops will look at steps to starting your own kitchen garden—such as transplanting saplings and sowing seeds in a container—as well as maintaining and caring for your plants once you’ve set up. A third workshop will also be held demonstrating how to make your own Amrit Mitti soil from dead leaves.
The workshops will take place at Maharashtra Nature Park, Mahim and the dates are as follows:
• Sunday 25 November-Start your kitchen garden
• Sunday 2 December-Making of Amrit Mitti
• Sunday 9 December-Maintain kitchen garden
Sessions run from 8am until 12:30pm and are capped at 40 people per event. Head to Urban Leaves’ (http://www.urbanleaves.org/) website to register.
