Green Thumbs of the neighbourhood bag BSG Home Garden Competition awards
The state may be witnessing an inexorable greying of the landscape with housing and commercial projects mushrooming all around.
However, there are fortunately several pockets of green that refuse to give in.
While agriculture in general is on the decline in our state, there however seems to be an encouraging resurgence of kitchen gardening in our neighbourhood.
Several intrepid Home Gardeners of our locality competed in the Botanical Society of Goa, Home Garden Competition held recently.
Their efforts bore fruit with some bagging prizes.
