Fresh & Local | Urban Farming in Bombay

Fresh & Local is a movement to facilitate urban farming in Mumbai, India.

Started in the spring of 2010, in response to the lack of fresh and organic produce, and the lack of resources and support for urban farming in the city. The organization researches and develops best practices, design gardens and garden products, host gardening workshops and work in partnership with NGOs and individuals to set up kitchen gardens across the city. We believe that by creating replicable models of urban farming we can inspire the changes needed to improve access to quality food for all Mumbai residents.
