    Organized by Pinto Organic Urban Farm

    This unusual urban farm is located at Santacruz, near Panjim city. Surrounded by urban homes and apartment buildings, it is intended to create an example of how urban spaces can be put to more sustainable uses in Goa. The farm, formerly a coconut plantation, lay uncultivated for 25 years before being revived by Christabel and Jose Pinto in 2011, using organic practices. It is now a productive farm growing many types of seasonal organic vegetables, fruits, plantation crops.
