Gurugram’s new age farmers

In Gurugram, urban farmers are attracting attention and urban farming has found a new meaning and definition. In the cyber city, over 200  organisational heads, lawyers, doctors, entrepreneurs, professionals, teachers and social workers have taken on lease small farmlands where they are themselves  growing tradition fruits, vegetables and grains and various exotic plants. Community organic farming has found its footing amongst the working class people of the millennium city who are out to try their hands at growing fresh organic food items, engage with nature or simply return to their roots and unwind, leaving the hectic city life behind.

This farming culture has not only changed the lives of urbanites but also of local farmers, who are earning thrice the money they did earlier by taking land on contract for agriculture in the traditional way.
