Making life simpler – Bangalore Mirror

The ” Eat , Walk, Feed ” concept that was proposed at World Usability day 09 has been covered by Bangalore mirror dated 11th December 2009.

Read more about it here.

How does the idea of walking out of a concrete jungle right into the arms of a vegetable garden sound to you? One of the teams came up with an idea of an ‘edible landscape’. Instead of spending loads of moolah on decorative but useless plants, plant vegetables like tomatoes and the like. This method also initiates a change in the behavioural level of the employees, because it becomes the responsibility of the employees to feed the plant. They are encouraged to walk in the gardens and feed the plants, thereby promoting good health, sustained eco-system around offices and effective utilization of office spaces. The idea was mooted by Angeline Bhavya(@strangie) , Kanchana G (@kanchana_g) and Shankar Narayan (@notnarayan)

    All the best!!
