I am Ekta.
I am a teacher, a gardener and an entrepreneur living in Mumbai.
I started my career as a researcher spending a decade studying Ecology and sustainable farming practices among communities in the Himalayas.
After finishing my Ph.D., I took to gardening full-time and started my own venture, Garden Up, a logical extension to my Youtube channel.
