Welcome to MUMBAI FARMER and thanks for stopping by! I’m Mandy, a Mumbai-based entrepreneur and greenie at heart! I started this website in 2013 to connect with like-minded greenies, exchange resources, and grow the organic way of life in Mumbai.
Urban farming is a global trend. As people become aware of the deadly effects of mass-produced, chemicalized food, and with few organic options available, many choose to grow some of their food themselves (See: Why Grow?). MUMBAI FARMER is for those who have some growing space, are open to learning, and believe in co-creating a healthier world with nature. MUMBAI FARMER gives you all the information you need to grow your food – sustainably and organically (See: When to Grow?, What to Grow?, How to Grow?, Growing Organically). This website is the result of years of hands-on research on my Mumbai terrace farm, and another year of dogged documentation. Do check out my Plantopedia that offers in-depth info on 30+ native veggies and herbs. But having mentioned all the hard work, please know that MUMBAI FARMER has also been a fun project, and continues to give me happy outdoor opportunities, with new challenges and joys everyday! Read about these adventures in my posts!
If you’re looking to buy earth products, farm plants, medicinals, ornamentals (all organic) or garden accessories, do check out my Shop. I also offer Consults and Installations of Edible Gardens, Urban Farms, Herb Gardens, Food Forests, Healthy Green Interiors, CHS/Corporate Makeovers, Streetside Greenscapes and Permaculture Farms – all that and more at Mandys Farm India. You can catch the latest of what’s happening on my farm and in my “growing” business on Twitter and Instagram. But if you just want to connect and chill with other greenies, and perhaps share pix of your growing beauties, then Mumbai Farmers on facebook is where you need to to be. Come, join our 5000+ farming tribe! Be part of the positive, green change you wish to see in our big, bad city!
