Salvana Ihtisham

My love for gardening took seed as I grew up on the outskirts of a small fishing village in the far-flung suburbs of Mumbai. Our lush garden across the Arabian Sea was full of coconut trees, Bougainvillea, Jasmines, wildflowers, and all kinds of animals ranging from chameleons to snakes. I was in awe of the diversity around me, and I learned to respect nature and the importance of the ecosystem. As I stepped out of childhood and into the hectic pace of a career, family & responsibilities, the fascination and love for nature always burned deep inside of me.

I harbored and nurtured this desire to grow healthy & chemical-free food for my friends and family and create a natural and safe habitat for animals. After years of working on this passion project, I am finally able to share with you a slice of my dream in the form of Microgreens, grown organically with love, care, and pride.

It has been a long journey – one that I never want to end. My hope is many of you will join me along the way, enjoy, share, and inspire me to do more.
