Food is the basic need. In urban areas food is bought from rural areas. Mostly in urban areas, non food plants are grown. Every plant is beautiful and if it has a value as food, then it serves greater purpose. As the concentration of population in urban areas is high and also globally the population is growing. There is a limit for land resources to grow enough food for the needs of ever growing population. Food security is imminent; by 2020 many countries would face this problem on a large scale. By cultivating food plants, the greenery in the urban areas is restored, would address the livelihoods of some people, as a carbon sink and also benefits through CO2 emissions reduction. Biochar compost used as a media for growing crops addresses carbon sequestration and emissions reduction from soil and compost, purifies the water, having high water retention capacity, needs less water and frequency of application of water is reduced, drastically reduces the fertilizer application due to reduced leachets, acts as an insulation material for the rooms, creates a great space of vibrancy and freshness in urban areas.
