Celebrating World Environment Day with The Imperial

The Imperial New Delhi had put together an interesting afternoon for World Environment Day to create awareness on the significance of consuming slow food or home-grown food. The idea was to educate people on the need for pesticide-free food, by decentralising the way we source it. Present on the occasion was Sangeeta Khanna - healing food expert who talked on the importance and benefits of home-grown- fresh fruits and vegetables plucked right from your garden. "It's very easy to begin from your home garden" she said giving examples of how easy it was to grow vegetables like okra, brinjal, tomatoes etc.  It's so necessary to know about this as most of the vegetables that we eat today are probably infested with chemicals unless it is organic and grown by ourselves.

The guests were also introduced to www.Khetify.com - a smart urban home farming solution by Shabnam Kapoor, co founder, who gave simple solutions to urban farming right in your backyard, terrace or your mini kitchen garden. The afternoon ended with an organically curated Hi -Tea with delicious savouries by Executive Sous Chef Alok Verma that included purple quinoa, gramflour pancakes filled with fresh green vegetables and aloe vera smoothie. Also among the spread were some of Sangeeta's own recipes that included buck wheat scones and ragi apple cake.
