Dream Grove Bandra Community Farm
Dream Grove Bandra is a community farm inside the MCGM D'Monte Road garden, a public park nestled in the bylanes of Bandra.
The project is a citizen-led initiative that aims to create a model for low-cost, sustainable and green public spaces. Volunteers come together every Sunday evening to green the space and create a Food Forest by growing organic produce in the park.
Please note: There are limited volunteer spots available, and hence prior registration is a must.
How can volunteers help?:
Volunteers can help with gardening activities such as leaf collection, segregation, mulching, composting, bed making and clearing trash.
Meet the Team:
The initiative kickstarted when nature-lover Marie Paul, who wanted to revive her local park, met Premila Martis, who had a background in urban farming and environment care. They came together with other like-minded enthusiastic volunteers to build Dream Grove.
Things to keep in mind:
- Volunteering is by registration only. Walk-ins without prior registration may not be accommodated.
- Activities include outdoor farm activities, so be prepared to get your hands dirty else carry a pair of gloves
- Don't forget to carry own water bottle and cloth bag
- Wear fill sleeves shirts and full pants (garden mosquitoes are pesky), shoes and socks
