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.
Today, Garden Up content, services and products through social media, workshops, online courses, home decor store caters to a young Indian and International audience, helping them find greenery, sustainability and balance in their lives.
