SUSTAINABLE CITIES & ECOLOGY
BACKGROUND & RATIONALE
Green Creeps is an Urban farming Initiative by Swechha India. It was set up in May of 2015 to bridge the gap between the city and the jungle. We create herb gardens for kitchens, edible terraces that invite butterflies & majestic creepy crawlies, urban fruit forests for backyards, vertical wall gardens & living desk tops for offices. We bring jungles back to the cities. The main motives are to increase the number of urban gardens in communities and decrease the time, knowledge, and confidence barriers that prevent people from growing their own food.
URBAN FRUIT FORESTS
UPCYCLED HOME GARDENS
LIVING OFFICE DESKTOPS
The Green Creeps initiative is geared towards impacting maximum urban residents and community members. Various workshops are organized around creating herb gardens for kitchens, edible food-scapes for terraces, urban fruit forests for backyards, vertical wall gardens & living desktops for offices. We conduct sessions for children, teaching them how different types of plants can be sowed at home using soilless medium. We emphasize on upcycling, and learning how to use waste material as containers for plants. In our effort to do so, we invite volunteers to plant with us, and experience how “everything grows and everyone can grow.”
We are always looking for young and enthusiastic minds that can help us create the change along with being the change. Whatever your passion, we always have opportunities for you along with endless cups of Chai!
