Ahmad family has been involved with us at growing food in their small home garden. Reswana and Saba the two women of the house are busy growing kadi patta, mint, spinach, basil, wheat grass, amaranth, coriander, fenugreek (methi), ajwain and sadabahar (native flower). Our team member Kush Sethi initiated this partnership of growing food with the family. The Negotiating Food Project has been working with them to set up their garden space.

Reswana and Saba ji talking to each other about how the small saplings keep bending towards the sunlight and that every time they move the flower pots the plants again find the direction of the sun light.
