To connect organic products directly with people, ‘Anant Mandi’ was held at Gandhi Bhavan on Sunday.
The objective of this program is to establish a culture where people can buy organic products from local farmers and producers and also know them.
ANANT, in collaboration with Go Rurban, organizes a Farm Fest Ananat Mandi on Sunday. It aimed to promote the practice of organic farming and vegetable gardening in urban areas and to strengthen the relationship between producer farmers and organic consumers.
It is a platform being created for the common urban crowd to find healthy and sustainable alternatives for food, compared to the unhealthy and inorganic food materials they regularly consume.
The goal is to create a space for urban consumers to start “living” healthy lives and “adopting” sustainable living practices.
Farmers from Bhopal, Dewas, Itarsi, Hoshangabad, Vidisha Sihor and other districts will participate in this market which will offer different types of food products or eco-friendly items. This program promotes a sustainable biography in a unique way, and by irrigating its energy, society is motivated towards development. In view of the growing enthusiasm of the population, from now on this mandi will take place twice a month.
The one-day event will include different events. There was an Organic Food Mandi, set up by various organic farmers and gardeners in and around Bhopal. Also, workshops and panel discussions on various aspects of the importance of organic food and the variety of farming, by experienced organic farmers and entrepreneurs.
The Bhopalites also enjoyed the organic lunch with different and delicious dishes. It was followed by Tambola night, many visitors participated and enjoyed Anant Mandi Farm Fest.
