Our guest this week is Manju Kumar of the Sarvodaya Institute. She shares her philosophy about gardening and her favorite sub-tropical and tropical fruits to grow.
Manju is the mother of one of our other recent guests, Rishi Kumar. Together they run the Sarvodaya Institute. Manju walks us through the farm and tells the story of how they turned barren land into a thriving farm while engaging the community.
