Adrienne Thadani

Adrienne founded the organization Fresh & Local in 2010, because she believes growing, even just some of your own food, is life changing – gardening is a valuable life skill that is both therapeutic and empowering. Over the years she has come to realize that even the smallest garden can bring people together and transform a place. Through her work with Fresh & Local she aims to make urban farming easy and accessible to all. Adrienne currently works in Mumbai, Alibaug, Goa and Rajasthan on projects ranging from restaurant and hotel kitchen gardens to community terrace gardens to product design and development. She is a two time Unltd India Investee and has received grants from UCL Grand Challenges and UN HABITAT for urban farming projects.
