Secret India: Meet the duo behind The Tables incredible farm

When you grow up in what is voted the most liveable town in North America (Nelson, Canada), which has more organic coffee shops than most cities, where the word(s) on the street are kale, spirulina and maca, and your father started the first WWOOF (Willing Workers on Organic Farms) in Canada on his homestead, you understand why Jonathan Benda might have developed a green thumb.

On the other hand, half Indian Adrienne Thadani, Bendas partner in their organic farming and landscape consultancy Thrive, admittedly hadnt grown anything except maybe a cucumber with her grandmother while growing up in Washington DC. Luckily, as her best friends mom opened the first organic restaurant in the city, she always had access to the clean food she would one day want to grow.
