Intipanta Meeting at Do Din 2014
This meeting will highlight a new phenomenon in Hyderabad and in many Indian cities – urban agriculture. Many families in cities are turning to rooftop and kitchen gardens as a way to produce vegetables and other necessary food items on a small scale. These urban agriculturists often from middle class families and living in the concrete jungle find such home based food production to be contributing their quality of life. They have also been communities of practice – networks through which techniques and resources are passed on.
