Rafiq spent most of his childhood where every house used to grow their own food and everyone was familiar with farming. He moved to Delhi where the lifestyle was very different. As soon as he learned about Edible Routes, he took the opportunity to come back to the land and reconnect with his food. Rafiq is keen to learn natural farming techniques and has successfully managed Edible Routes farm at Vasant Kunj since 2019. As a travel lover, he loves to support the Kitchen Garden Operation team to set up beautiful kitchen gardens and farms all over India.
