Meet Gurleen who started growing strawberries during lockdown 2020 and converted her hobby into a business.
Gurleen Chawla (23), an inhabitant of Jhansi, Bundelkhand began to develop strawberries in her porch garden during the lockdown. Presently, she develops on a seven section of land property, and has teamed up with stores, eateries and home pastry specialists to supply her produce.
Consistently, throughout the late spring months, the inhabitants of the Bundelkhand area, between Madhya Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh, fight water shortage. As indicated by news reports, in 2020, water shortage was a greater emergency around here than the Covid pandemic.
Yet, 23-year-old Gurleen Chawla, an inhabitant of Jhansi and a law move on from Indian Law Society's (ILS) Law College, Pune, has launched an upset by developing strawberries in this water-dried area.
How? Everything began in her porch garden.
"At the point when I was back home at Jhansi during the lockdown, I chose to take up another pastime and keep myself involved by developing vegetables and natural products on our patio.
At first, I planted kitchen staples including tomatoes and chillies. Yet, strawberries are my food grown from the ground burned-through it routinely when I was in Pune. In this way, I chose to take a stab at developing that as well," says Gurleen.
Presently, she develops the organic product on 1.5 sections of land and earns enough to pay the rent by offering 60 to 65 kilograms of it.
