Course Overview


Urban gardening and urban agriculture are becoming increasingly important as our world becomes more urbanized and developers transform agriculturally fertile lands and open spaces into sprawling suburbs.

 

Even in a heavily populated country like India, with some of the largest cities in the world, Kamal Nath and the Urban Ministry are pushing for more urban gardening in the cities and suburbs.

 

This course will teach you how help environmentally-conscious urban dwellers to create a green corner devoted to nature in their own home, or who want to support community-based gardening or agriculture projects in their neighborhood. Get started today!
