At A Green Venture we believe in taking you through a journey of where food started, how trees grew, native and non-native species, the diversity of medicinal plants and the role of small yet significant creatures like honeybees, earthworms, cows and wildlife at farms.
Through day-trips, weekend workshops and camps we intend in showing you the greener side of the world and how you can actively switch to better informed choices when shopping organic and natural food. A typical day at a farm located outside the city includes a farm trail and learning about the role of nature in growing our food.
