Seasonal and off-season vegetables are grown in polyhouses at Chinoni campus to keep a weekly supply of fresh stock.
INHERE is promoting cultivation and consumption of self-grown food which is natural and chemical-free. Growing food in small kitchen gardens and at workspace promotes a culture of self-reliance and reduces dependency on commercially grown crops which often involve chemicals and pesticides to boost production.
INHERE grows vegetables at its Organic Farming Training Unit at Chinoni. A ‘weekend mart’ has been initiated at Chinoni which offers freshly plucked organic vegetables to staff and associates of INHERE. Whatever is grown over the week is sold on Saturday at a reasonable price thereby institutionalising the concept of ‘farm to table’. Credit goes to Mr. Pawan Singh Kaira, one of the youngest staff members, and Mr. Puran Nath for this effort. This venture also contributes to sustainability of the organic vegetable plot.
Institutionalising kitchen garden at workspaces not only inculcates the habit of growing one’s own food but also contributes to an organic and healthy lifestyle!
