Noida, Mar 22: Concern over what their children eat — food laden with pesticides, chemicals and fertilizers — has driven six families in Noida to farming organic vegetables.

The families that consist of entrepreneurs and professionals working with multinational companies have leased out land to grow organic pulses, potato, onion, cauliflower and peas among other items.

On weekends, these families turn farmers and do everything from composting to ploughing and removing weeds from farmland. The children join them.
