The Grow Your Own Food Project (GYOFOOD)

smart farming system

WRENCH Solutions has been helping companies transform their business through digital technology for 20 years. Our commitment to social change through technology has translated into a variety of social and lifestyle initiatives.

Grow Your Own Food (GYOF) is a social Enterprise set up by WRENCH Solutions which helps ordinary citizens grow and consume their own nutritious and pesticide-free plants, out of their own homes. GYOF is run out of our Kochi-based R&D Centre and is one of our key CSR programmes.

Today, the GYOF project is about 8 months old. Its mission is to grow vegetables that can produce yield 365 days a year, organically, economically, and with minimum human intervention. Like our crop, we’re starting small, but we’re strong and we’re going to keep growing, no matter what.

Convincing adults to grow vegetables is a lot harder than convincing kids to eat them.

Kerala is nicknamed God’s Own Country. Tourists come from all over the world to bask in her lush tropical beauty. Bustling backwaters beckon. Exotic and delicious foods abound. From appam (thin rice pancake) to puttu (crumbly breakfast dish) to sadya (typical 5-course meal), Kerala’s sumptuous cuisine entices travelers to return again and again. But did you know that not a single vegetable in that avial you just savoured was grown in Kerala?
