A Green Venture Celebrates the Environment

VR Bengaluru went green on June 4th-5th with farmers, gardeners, experts and products as we showcased our eco platforms for consumers to understand and experience healthier alternatives and demystify the green area through farm-fresh, waste management, activities, products and eco-music.

Farm to Fork – Bridging the gap between the maker and consumer where you meet, green and taste from growers of your food directly! AGV brought close to 8 farmers over 2 days who displayed farm-fresh vegetables, fruits, milk, honey, spices, poultry, sustainable cotton, staples, millets, grains and more. The focus of this eco-property was to learn how and where organic, sustainable farming in Bangalore comes from and buy directly from the makers. Read more about our natural farmer/ experts

Vertical Garden from recyclables – Using material that would be junked, a vertical garden was created using coconut shells, glass bottles, industrial containers, bamboo and cane showcasing the various uses of waste and the benefits of giving used good a longer shelf life with green steps.
