Summer camp for children, Urban Leaves, 29th May – 7th June 2011, Maharashtra Nature Park, Mumbai

Organizer: Urban Leaves

Venue: Maharashtra Nature Park, Opp Dharavi Bus Depot, Dharavi, Mumbai.


In our urban lifestyles, our children have lost touch with their earth, their soil and their food. Our lives are getting caught up in this automated world. We struggle to control our environment to suit our mechanical lifestyle.It  is our endeavour at Urban Leaves to learn, share and grow the free gifts and joys of nature, to create an ocean of greenery in the city sheerly by tuning ourselves to the harmony of nature. Children are most sensitive to such joys, and they deserve to be exposed to nature to learn the magic of creation by the hands on experience of building their own sustainable farms.
