[Ambassador report] [Monthly Report] Sustainable Table: Home Gardening

by Kushal Naharki | 07-12-2019 20:42 Comments 12 Comments recommendations 0 recommendations



When vegetables are produced in the family or kitchen garden for household consumption, this is known as home garden. Home gardening is growing of vegetable gardens in the residential houses to meet the requirement of the family all the year round. The main purpose of this garden is to provide fresh vegetable to the families for daily use. Growing the foods, we need ourselves helps to protect our environment too.

There's no better way to perpetuate the eating local, sustainable foods trend than by growing your own fruits, vegetables, herbs and beans at your home garden. Just like cooking from scratch at home, maintaining a fruitful, sustainable home garden provides a sense of empowerment because you're in complete control of what you'll consume.

 

Advantages of Home garden are:

1. We can get fresh and nutritious vegetables needed for us.

2. We can grow healthy and pesticides free foods.

3. We can reduce our carbon food print.

4. We can recycle the wastage food and water with composting.

 

 

We need to take a step towards “Going Green” in our home and give growing some of your own food a try. We can keep our air, water, and soil clean by helping to reduce the demands put on our land every day by commercial agriculture. Let’s make a positive impact on our environment today and create a sustainable table at our home.

 

With the growing number of the people living in the urban and cities areas, there are different methods of growing our own food for the sustainable table:

a. Urban Farming: The practice of cultivating, processing and distributing food in or around urban areas

b. Hydroponics: The process of growing plants in sand, gravel, or liquid, with added nutrients but without soil.

c.  Aeroponics: The process of growing plants in an air or mist environment without the use of soil or an aggregate medium.

d. Roof top farming: The cultivation of fresh produce on the top of buildings of cities.

e. Vertical farming: The practice of growing crops in vertically stacked layers.

    Hello Kushal

    There seems to be a lot of advantages in home gardening.
    I heard that the mass plantation can solve the problem of hunger, but at the same time it can cause pretty much pollution in the delivering process and etc. I hope the home gardening become popular in many urban areas and many people can practice it.

    Thank you for the informative report.

    Hello Kushal!
    It's Lisa.

    I am very glad to see that you have suggested some realistic ways in which we can contribute to creating a more sustainable dinner table!
    Home gardening is not something that not many of us do but it's something that all of us can do.
    Home gardening will not only teach us the value of food but also it will contribute to decreasing the carbon footprint as well in the long term! If we start gardening some of the vegetables that we consume instead of buying them in the market, carbon footprints that are created while the vegetables produced far away from us come all the way to our table will be prevented!!

    Thanks for sharing some useful information:)
