Lainate also renders a similarpicture in mind. The thesis investigates the possibility of community agriculture as a way to achieve compactness inspatial morphology and to achieve a more humane sustainable environment.

This would involve people, spread awareness, and also lead people to the exhibition area where the wall isprovided for the jute balls to grow. The wall filled by people can be later put in the city to bring the decadent surfaces tolife. Jute Soil Seeds String
