The importance of food forests in the creation of eco-habitats goes beyond mere aesthetics or landscaping; it is a fundamental aspect that contributes to the delicate balance supporting life within these environments. Every plant and tree strategically chosen plays a crucial role in fostering biodiversity, promoting soil health, and creating microclimates that sustain a variety of species.

The Workshop Experience

On 13th November ’23, Studio Organo took a significant step in this direction by hosting a horticulture workshop dedicated to understanding plant and tree species and sensorial experiences (taste, smell, sight, touch, etc). The session, held at our office, was curated by Abhinav Gangumalla, an engineer turned farmer and wellness coach, driven by a passion for sustainable living.

Abhinav, an expert horticulturist, brought his expertise to life, revealing a lush tapestry of possibilities. This workshop went beyond being a visual feast; it engaged our senses in a symphony of taste, smell, and touch. Delving into more than 25 plant and tree species, participants discovered how each could be seamlessly integrated into the fabric of our eco-communities.

A Call to Reimagine

The Organo team, comprising the Product and Farming teams, mission is to infuse our eco-habitats with sensory-rich, sustainable landscapes that elevate the quality of life for residents. The workshop wasn't merely a revelation; it was an encouraging call to reimagine our approach to food forest experiences. A big thank you to Abhinav Gangumalla for this workshop.
