Bengalurus Manyata Tech Park is breaking new ground by having decided to grow its own food. During their free time, the employees of the tech park have been hard at work making it an organic campus.
An employee, K Jayasree, told Bangalore Mirror, “I am growing baby corn and spinach in the plot. My plants are still tender but I am excited to reap what I have sowed. This is a great initiative because unlike earlier, now my breaks are very fruitful and gardening in itself is a very relaxing exercise. I am having the best time of my life during my gardening breaks.” Interestingly, there is also a facility for employees to take the crops grown on campus home. Embassy Services CEO Pradeep Lala, in a chat with Bangalore Mirror, said, “This idea was first suggested to us by our landscaping department and a pilot project was started. Soon we received a huge response and then we planned to take it forward.”
