Organic farming is a form of agriculture that relies on crop rotation, green manure, compost, biological pest control
and mechanical cultivation to maintain soil productivity and control pests.
Since in urban cities limitation is insufficient land for farming, the concept of terrace farming, vertical and container farmings are upcoming trends in urban farming. Here in this blog I will be sharing every single effort and techniques in building my Organic Roof :)

National Horticorp Mission

Thankful to National and State Horticorp Mission in Implementing urban plantation in households in Trivandrum City( Kerala). 25 sacks with plant saplings were distributed among households in a batch. 

 Received sacks with Green Chilly, Okra ( Bhindi, Venda ), Eggplant ( Kathrikka) and few others.

Soil mixture is fertile and mixed with Coconut fibre, this will protect the soil from getting dried-out. Fibres help in retaining the moisture content within the sack.

Once Again Thanks to Trivandrum Corporation in Going Green !!
