Maharashtra farmer Bhausaheb Kanchan has transformed his urban home’s terrace into a beautiful grape vineyard.
An agricultural expedition in Europe gave him the confidence to do this, even without the availability of massive space.
He started by procuring Bangalore Purple, a variety of black grapes, and planted the saplings along the boundary wall.
He used an abundance of
cow dung, compost, organic matter
, and cow urine to provide natural nutrition.
The vines grew up to 32 feet tall!
When the vines matured, I got 108 branches. The next year, about a hundred more grew, and today, the vineyard collectively bears 250 kilos of grapes: Bhausaheb
on social media have been inspired to grow their own vineyards, thanks to Bhausaheb.
