At Fresh & Local‘s Flyover Farm in Mumbai, the founders believe that urban farming is an integral part of improving the overall health and wellbeing of a city.

Flyover Farm is a community urban farm showcasing and experimenting with rooftop organic farming in one of the most dense and heavily trafficked areas of Mumbai. Flyover Farm works with the residents of Mohamadi Manzil Building and a city-wide network of volunteers to grow food naturally, compost kitchen waste and address issues of air and noise pollution. In addition, Fresh & Local hosts monthly workshops and events for hands-on learning and researches and develops best practices specific to the urban context. Fresh & Local began in May 2010, and to date has worked directly with over 2,000 individuals in Mumbai, Alibaug, and Goa.
