We aim to persuade people living in urban environments to develop a lush thriving bed of plants and trees in and around any commercial or residential space. Greenery that is not only ornamental but also productive. Essentially grow vegetables, herbs and fruits wherever possible in the city - terraces, balconies, building compounds, open spaces that the local government can allot, road medians, building dead walls (vertical farming) etc.

1. Drive the green cover activities in the city with cooperation from individuals and entities alike

2. Encourage Urban Farming


3. Build a community of people enthusiastic about the initiative

4. Bring awareness of the program
