Ever wondered why forests grow in such a lush manner and need absolutely no maintenance? Over the centuries this question, pondered by many an agriculturist, has been solved in many different ways. A brilliant man from our country has done so, too. His teachings have prevented perpetuation of tragic occurrences of Farmers suicide. The great man who is teaching these techniques is Shri Subhash Palekar. Not only does Shri Subhash Palekar’s natural farming methods resonate very closely with us at ArtyPlantz, his mission of helping people and lands strikes a home run. Our mission is after all to heal minds and lands through plants. A question we had to answer however, was how do we help put it out to people? It came to mind that there are so many people in the city who have lands that they would like to farm on. CityZen Farming Initiative was born out of these discoveries. It is an initiative that helps people set up food forests or invest in food forest ventures that would supply them with returns in material or kind.
The initiative also conducts regular workshops on Natural Farming and Terrace Kitchen Garden practices. The mission is focussing on diverting Diploma Holders and graduates in Agriculture from joining pesticide companies into learning to become social entrepreneurs who spread the message of Natural Farming through hands-on activities and services that offer food without poison for people
