Yes, you have green alternatives. We are offering them. Make your choice. Go Green!

Organic City was established in 2014 with a goal of providing Green Living solutions to the people of the city of Karachi! 

Founded by environmentalists Yasir Husain and Zahra Ali, Organic City is a platform for a diverse set of programs, some considerably older than Organic City itself. We have worked in all kinds of settings: urban, trendy, schools, community, health, women’s groups, low-income, rural, farming, scientific, technological, therapy, inspirational, in many combinations.

Crops in Pots and Green Schools Pakistan continue to be run by Zahra Ali.

Yasir Husain runs Art Lab and Organic City.
