Sometimes it’s difficult to find the right inputs for your organic kitchen garden. They stock several products (in Goa only) for organic soil improvement and pest management, and also seasonal vegetables.
They coach people on growing their own food at home organically. Drop in for their workshops or have Green Essentials design your kitchen garden – outdoors or on a balcony. Their garden guide service helps beginners get a quick start on growing vegetables and fruits in gardens, balconies or terraces and by making organic gardening inputs more easily accessible.
Green Essentials guides people who are looking to improving the quality of their food, by growing it organically at home. Inspired by Poonam Kasturi’s Daily Dump, they began as a small store, which originated because of their personal adventures (and frustrations) while searching for green products that met their own needs.
Over the years, they’ve moved from selling green products into promoting the cause of organic kitchen gardening, because of the amazing positive impact that this has on them and on their environment. People in Green Essentials believe that kitchen gardening is an important way to influence us directly (our health) and indirectly (the health of our environment – the water, soil, plants and more). They also try to educate the community about various topics related to the environment.
They have been a part of various initiatives organised by the International Centre Goa and the Botanical Society of Goa to promote organic kitchen gardening in Goa and Mumbai. Green Essentials provides organic gardeners easy access to the inputs they need to break free from synthetic fertilisers and poison-based pest repellents.
