A daylong event informing about organic farming Farm Fest was organised here on Sunday at Career College.

Collaboratively organised by ANANT, Career College and Go Rurban, the fest aimed to promote the practice of organic farming and kitchen gardening in urban settings and to enhance the relationship of organic farmer producers and consumers.

It is a platform being created for the common urban crowd to find healthy and sustainable alternatives for food, as against the unhealthy and inorganic food materials that they consume regularly.

The daylong event was full of fun filled activities. A ‘Mand’ of organic food products was put by farmers from various places like Hoshangabad, Dewas, Vidisha, Sohagpur and Bhopal. Numerous people in city who are interested in healthy food and natural farming visted the mandi and bought naturally grown vegetables and grains and also interacted with the farmers on various aspects. This also helped the consumers to get to know the producers directly.

The city dwellers interested in growing their own food attended the Kitchen gardening workshop at the fest and learnt the art of growing.

This workshop was conducted by Komal Jaiswal, an experienced kitchen garderner in Bhopal.

Anshuman, who runs a food truck in Bhopal, also prepared organic meal (pulao and raita) for the visitors, which was relished by people in huge number.

There was a panel discussion by six field experts Prateek Sharma, Sandeep Saxena, Madhur Anand, Sandeep Sharma, Subhadra, Mr. Rathod, who discussed various aspects of organic food and natural farming from the lens of nutrition, dairy farming, affordability, daily practice, entrepreneurship.
