Green Souls Community Farm
Green Souls Community Farm is a sustainable organic food garden located at Tata Memorial Hospital campus at Kharghar, Navi Mumbai. The main objective of this 30,000 square foot farm is to provide fresh, healthy, chemical-free food to children undergoing cancer treatment at the hospital.
Over 50 varieties of seasonal vegetables, herbs, fruits and medicinal plants are grown on this farm, while nurturing a biodiversity habitat with varied species of butterflies, birds and other pollinators making the farm their home. The farm welcomes volunteers who are keen on community service, environmental conservation or simply hands-on learning.
How can volunteers help?:
Volunteers are assigned the tasks based on the growing season and the farm's scheduled plan. Broadly the tasks include harvesting, sowing, transplanting, maintenance, mulching, pest control, etc.
