Would love to learn about and explore Urban Gardening techniques? Visit CityGreen’s Research Center for Home Gardeners

A couple of months ago we had announced about setting up of a Research Centre focussed on Home Gardeners. Happy to inform you that our team has set it up and the center is now operational.

CityGreen’s UFRC. J. P. Nagar – Phase 1 (Bengaluru)

This is a 30 Sq. M unit set-up on a terrace in order to replicate the conditions faced by a typical home gardener. Under this one roof, we plant to experiment with up to 5 different growing technologies and up to 15 varied crop combinations all focused on the needs of a home grower which vary substantially from that of a commercial grower. You can read about that here. A few pictures from the center.

Further, every Saturday, between 3 PM to 5 PM the center will be open to visits from interested fellow farmers, gardeners, hobbyists, enthusiasts, and budding Agri Entrepreneurs (by prior appointment). So, if you happen to be in Bengaluru on any of the Saturdays and would like to visit our center, leave us a WhatsApp message on +91 831 031 2660. We will be happy to share what we know 🙂
