Sangeeta is an entrepreneur and Founder-Director of VRVirtual.com Pvt. Ltd., a Delhi based Web Solutions Company. She is passionate about Green Living and has been segregating waste at home for over two years. Her search for doing more connected her to Edible Routes.
She says, “Connecting with soil and growing plants has taught me a deep lesson – Life grows and matures at its own pace, we cannot push it. We can only nurture it by providing right ingredients and lots of love. The team at Edible Routes is warm and passionate. They welcome ideas, celebrate differences and are truly committed to making urban living experience richer by connecting lives to the joy of growing”.
