The Good City sends out festive greetings for the Gowri-Ganesha habba. We invoke the blessings of the Goddess Gowri and her elephant-headed son, the remover of obstacles and bestower of wisdom, who has arrived this year in a 'green' form.

This 'Green Ganesha' can be worshipped through the year as it morphs into a plant. Made of natural soil and clay, the idol has fillings of cocopeat, manure and seed balls.

After being worshipped during the festival, the idol can be transferred in a tray or a pot to the garden or any open space in the house and watered. A sapling will shoot up in a few days.

The startup behind it, "GrowShareSustain", focusses on food sustainability, they encourage buyers to choose vegetable seeds. Purchasers can also choose to buy, along with the idol, a tray filled with natural red soil and manure.

It comes with an embedded seed ball that will germinate as the idol dissolves
