A couple of months after buying a plot measuring 4800 SFT, we had to move to the USA. The best thing about Chennai Urban Farms is that they love the trees on our plot and nourish and nurture them as their own.
Since we live in the US, we are compelled to reach out to Chennai Urban Farms only in the late hours and yet the owner of Chennai Urban Farms, Mr. Athher Ahmed is available to address queries and concerns even at the late hour – CRM 24×7.
I own a plot in Sholing Greens. The plot contains fully grown mango, coconut, teak and jackfruit trees. Chennai Urban Farms created a WhatsApp group of all the owners and it is a big help in sharing information about the status of our farmhouse plots. The very fact that CUF has brought all the owners to come together on a common information sharing platform and encourages the owners to visit the site often reveals transparency in dealings that is quite comforting. Whenever there is a concern, all it takes to grab the attention of the owner of Chennai Urban Farms is a simple WhatsApp message.
Hi, I am the proud owner of a farmhouse plot at Paalaar Greens. Chennai Urban Farms is passionate about growing trees the organic way as their knowledge and assistance to ordinary people like me is fabulous. Every time we visit our plot, which is once a month, we are able to see the results of the hardwork the team at Chennai Urban Farms has put in to make our farmhouse dream a reality.
The vibrant greenery and the measurable tree growth gives me immense confidence that by 2018, I would be getting chemical free fruits from my own farm. This is apart from the vegetables that I pluck whenever I visit Paalaar Greens. Kudos to Chennai Urban Farms for converting a barren piece of land into a beautiful garden offering bountiful greens.
