Organic Farming is the ‘in’ thing. Everyone is talking about it and many want to become an Organic Farmer themselves. Even movie stars are into it now. There are separate racks in stores for organic produce and even certain beauty products are being labeled as organic now. There are multiple ‘free’ organic farming webinars being offered on social media on a daily basis. Though not very common, but still business models are being sold based on organic farming. Art projects are being developed based it (though I wont call them Art projects). Even I have used this term in my … The post What is Or ..read more

But soon I started getting requests for making specific posts related to organic terrace gardening. While I kept sharing my finding I also started to make posts on readers’ requests. And thus this blog grew into a learning resource for people who wanted to learn to grow organic vegetables in a sustainable manner. But it … The post Learn t ..read more

How to Preserve Tomatoes in The Most Delicious Way

Tomato is one plant which never disappoints in terms of produce, if basics are done right. In our organic terrace garden tomato is in fact one of the most highly producing plants (here is my earlier post on how to grow tomatoes). Generally we grow around eight to ten regular tomato and four to five cherry tomato plants every winter and we have never had to buy tomatoes from the market. In fact there is a lot of surplus and even after sharing some of it with our neighbors we are still left with lots and lots of fresh and juicy … The post How to Preserve Tomatoes in The Most Delicious Way appea ..read more

Growing These Four Herbs in Your Garden is Super Easy

Sometime earlier I got a request from one of my readers to write a post on how to grow coriander from seeds. I was a little surprised that I had not made a post on it already. And when I checked I found out that I have not made any post on growing any herb whatsoever. Herbs are integral part of a terrace vegetable garden; not only they are easy to grow and pack loads of flavors for your food, but also because they act as pest repellents and thus help in pest management of your garden organically. So I … The post Growing These Four Herbs in Your Garden is Super Easy appeared first on Terrace G ..read more

Green Ninja – The Urban Farming Workshop for Kids Date – 24.11.2019, Venue – Aikyam I am very excited about this post. A few days earlier I got an opportunity to conduct my very first Organic Urban Farming Workshop for kids. The workshop was organized by Aikyam located in Old Town area of Bhubaneswar. Surrounded by canopies of different trees of varying shades of green, the open terrace of Aikyam provided the ideal setting for the workshop. But having never conducted any programs for children earlier I was nowhere near being the ideal instructor. So I really had to prepare well. There were ..read more

Thanks to Greta Thunberg, people around the world have been woken up to climate change crisis. Some critics have already termed it as just a passing fad and some have also harshly criticized the demands of climate strike group as lop sided and even French media has warned that her radical ways could end up depressing a generation. Despite the criticism, we can not ignore the passion and effort of a young 16 year old, which for sure has brought about a much needed disruption in the collective slumber of the world. Along with climate activists there has also been the rise of … The post Organic ..read more

How to Grow Cluster Beans in Containers

Cluster beans is something that I never liked eating. It has a mild bitter taste which takes a little bit of getting used to. But when you acquire the taste it can become one of your favorites. For me the taste was never a problem. It was the texture which I disliked. The cluster beans that you typically get in market are a little hard in texture and the two sides of the bean has a string like hardness to it. Hence I never ate cluster beans though it is one of my sister’s favorite. It took me years of persuasion … The post How to Grow Cluster Beans in Containers appeared first on Terrace Gard ..read more

Fani, Aftermath and Way Ahead

A terrace garden being on the terrace is most vulnerable to strong winds. And when the wind speed reaches 200 kmph, disaster strikes; quite literally. And that is what happened to our rooftop food garden when cyclone Fani struck on 3rd April 2019. Our garden was completely destroyed. No Preparation can be Enough Of late we have had the issue of monkeys in our garden. In the last six months or so the gardens raids by monkeys had become frequent and we had lost about 80% of our produce and young plants to them. Hence we decided to extend our shade … The post Fani, Aftermath and Way Ahead appear ..read more
