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. It was the country’s first urban farming website, and remains the most comprehensive till date!
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, they choose to grow their food themselves (See: Why Grow?). MUMBAI FARMER is meant for those who have some space for plants, some zest to grow their own food, are curious about nature, and are committed to a healthier world. 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 to create and streamline this content for easy reading. It also has an exhaustive Plantopedia with information on growing conditions for more than 30 different veggies and herbs suited to this climate. Farming can be fun, and MUMBAI FARMER has proved to be a fun project, giving me lots of happy outdoor time, with new challenges and joys everyday! Read about these adventures in my posts!
If you’re looking to buy products to get started with your own urban farming adventures, you will find them at my Shop. If you prefer a headstart to growing, there are saplings, herbs, small plants and indoor plants at my Online Nursery. If you need help to set up your own urban farm, require consultation services on permaculture, biodynamic farming, organic agriculture or eco-tech, or even if you need to source knowledge expertise on green projects, get in touch with me and my professional partners at GCSGroup International. Finally, if you just need to connect with other greenies join us at Mumbai Farmers on facebook (our tribe has crossed 3100 in number) – our favorite place to share ideas, tips & resources!
