A Workshop on "Roof Top Kitchen Gardening: An Initiative” – cum - Farmers Fair was organized by Krishi Vigyan Kendra, ICAR- Indian Institute of Sugarcane Research, Lucknow on January 28, 2020. Inaugurating the Workshop-cum-Farmers Fair, Mrs. Sanyukta Bhatia, Mayor, Lucknow said that the inclusion of vegetables in our diet is extremely important for healthy and disease free life, as the vegetables not only protect our body from diseases, but also an abundant source of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients which are essential for good nutrition. Mrs. Bhatia further added that the rural people are migrating to the urban areas, leading to increase in the urban population besides, increasing pollution. Different types of chemicals are being used indiscriminately for the vegetables cultivation, making it very toxic and injurious to human health. This programme is being popularized by KVK of ICAR-IISR, Lucknow in the urban areas not only for making the availability of chemical free green vegetables, but also ensures proper utilization of time, saving money, creating awareness of agriculture and developing positive thinking among urban women.

At the outset, Dr. A.D. Pathak, Director, IISR welcomed the guests and the participants and highlighted the achievements made by KVK, Lucknow on roof top kitchen gardening in urban areas and kitchen gardening in rural areas and suggested that KVK should be given more emphasis on roof top gardening Dr. S.N. Singh, Principal Scientist & Nodal Officer, KVK, Lucknow highlighted about the purpose of organizing this awareness programme for urban women.

Dr. Singh further added that growing of vegetables on roof tops will not only be helpful in keeping the surroundings neat and clean, but also can be used as a hobby and creating an artistic and creative interest. On this occasion, seeds of improved varieties of different vegetables were also provided to the urban women trainees.
