70-year-old Lizy John from Bengaluru has been growing all kinds of organic vegetables, spices, and fruits in her terrace garden for the past nine years.

After running a business for over two decades, she decided to take up full-time organic farming on her terrace.

Today, this garden boasts of almost all kinds of vegetables, as well as several fruit trees.

She harvests around 1 kg of vegetables from her terrace garden everyday, which is more than enough for the five-member family.

She only buys onions and sometimes potatoes from the market, since the rest are all available in her garden.

Lizy grows her vegetables mostly in grow bags kept on elevated stands on her terrace.

She also uses plastic containers, buckets, drums, PVC pipes and plastic bottles to grow plants.

According to Lizy, one can turn anything into a planter.

She uses PVC pipes to plant leafy vegetables like spinach, coriander and even strawberries

She also turns plastic water bottles into planters to grow strawberries.

She also grows guavas, pomegranates, mangoes, jamuns, grapes, custard apples, water apples, western cherry, avocado, dragon fruits, oranges, blackberries, and mulberries.

Vegetables include tomatoes, brinjal, peas, okra, beans, spinach, chillies, bitter gourd, chow chow, air potatoes, drumstick, broccoli, cauliflower, and celery.

Lizy only uses organic fertilisers and pesticides in her garden.

She has also won several awards and accolades for her terrace gardening venture from different organisations in Kerala and Karnataka.
