Inspiraton - Gurugram (Gurgaon) residents can grow their 0wn Vegetables on Land Leased from the Govt.


The Horticulture Department of Gurgaon will make some agricultural land available to city residents who want to do farming and grow their own kitchen gardens for household needs.In this first-of-its-kind initiative, the city of Gurgaon will be emulating the community gardens of the US and UK where busy city people, who have very little space in their flats and apartments to grow vegetables, get away on weekends to do some gardening.

The department has taken 27 acres of farming land in Bhondsi from a third party; it will be available for lease in small patches to those residents who apply to the horticulture office in Gurgaon. The land will be leased out for at least a year. The rate has not been decided as yet. The department will provide seeds and pesticides at subsidized rates but regular maintenance, watering and security will be the responsibility of the person or families leasing the land.

People will be able to grow many vegetables they use at home everyday – like tomatoes, beans, gourds, brinjals, cauliflower, etc.Farming tools like ploughs, etc., will be made available at the site but the gardeners will have to bear the full farming costs. It is also a good idea for prospective farmers to test the soil quality before beginning to grow their vegetables....
