Co-founder of the Chandigarh Organic Farmers' Market.
Details & Background
She has 15 acres near Ropar and does organic farming and grows vegetables, wheat, pulses and potato.
"The idea [for the weekly market] came to us during the National Organic Farming Convention organised in 2015 in Chandigarh. We discussed the challenges being faced by organic producers and it came to the fore that marketing the produce was a big issue. Many farmers were interested in doing organic farming but at the end of the day they needed remunerative price for their produce. This is how the idea was mooted to have an organic mandi”.
