Over all it was a very unique event. Interacting with busy people on bus stops or trespassers to create awareness for a good cause was a different experience. The chance of getting not listened by people who are busy on the go was often, but the feeling when you receive a positive response, in fact a great compliment of this proposal made us feel happy. You get to learn by the body language of a person that he may be interested to talk or not. I thank my group mates for their hard work and contribution to make this event successful.

DAY: 05 Urban Street Arts!
After completing the structure, we had tasked to beautify its looks by using the street art technique over its layout.
We contacted the street artist we met earlier for further support and within two days, we had beautifully painted the mainframe of the structure with abstracts and facts to urban gardening.

DAY: 07 The Final Showdown!
After all the Hard work we had been doing since these days, 14th may was the date when we had to present this structure to public! our location was stevenson sq. (which opp. to fred aldous art store).
It was a pleasant day, and everything went as planned. We interacted with many people who came by the bus stop, and raised awareness about our mission. In spite of several suggestions and queries, the over all feedback was positive and our plant stock was given away much before time!

Using all the recycled materials from the site itself, we regrouped to start our work for this structure.Since the deadline to present was very close, it was only possible by the hard-work our group mates that we were able to finish this structure in a two days span.

DAY 01: 'Get introduced!' For the first day of our events, we had a field trip to the Hulme community garden. We met Helen (one of the trust member of the garden) to get some knowledge about garden and its clients. With a brief introduction on how she works we were also enriched with the heritage and importance of plants in daily lives. At the later day, we helped Helen in one of her tasks and learnt some basics of plantation.
