I am Ekta, a researcher turned entrepreneur, living in Mumbai.

I spent a decade studying Ecology, ranging from soil nutrient dynamics in the forests of southern India to sustainable farming practices among communities in the Himalayas. After finishing my PhD from IISc Bangalore, I decided to make a career in digital media and edutainment through my own venture, Garden Up, a logical extension to our successful Youtube channel.  


The dilemmas of urban existence throw obvious challenges while I try to find the right balance: so now I grow my own greens and order my pizza with extra cheese. Garden Up is the sum total of finding that balance, my contribution to a silent, yet powerful green revolution that's taking place in urban homes.
