Resource person: Sri Sathish, CropScience, Nanjangud
Venue: 13, 7th Main, 3rd Cross, Saraswathipuram, Mysuru - 570009
Date: 18 Dec 2016, 11 AM to 1 PM

The workshop was meant to encourage citizens to  grow their own food and not looking at space as a constrain. People were encouraged to grow their own food ( as far as possible)  in their exiting space around their house, in their balcony, kitchen counter, window sill, or terrace. 

Sri Sathish explained the basics of soil management, manure production and pesticide handling. One of the interesting question that propped up was - whether better aroma and better taste in vegetables would mean better nutrition? There wasn't any clear conclusion for the question. While we leave that question for scientists to explore, lets grow our own food and relish it as a common man!
