Abstract: Urban nutri-gardens, a response to urbanization challenges, provide hope amid concrete cityscapes by cultivating nutrient-rich produce in urban spaces. Urban gardening addresses food and nutritional security issues in contemporary urban environments. This study, conducted in Bangalore Urban District, explores the transformative benefits perceived by 90 respondents practicing urban nutri-gardens. The research findings highlight the perceived benefits of urban nutri-gardens among respondents in Bangalore Urban District. Notably, 96.67% of urban gardeners identified the availability of fresh and healthy food as the primary benefit, followed by the assurance of chemical-free vegetables (93.33%), improved emotional well-being (91.11%), enhanced household food and nutritional security (88.89%), and a sense of community pride (84.44%). Economic benefits, such as year-round vegetable availability, increased savings, and reduced expenditure on fruits and vegetables, were also acknowledged. Environmental benefits, including the utilization of domestic waste and efficient space usage, ranked high, showcasing urban gardening's role in waste reduction and sustainable practices. The research underscores the holistic impact of urban nutri-gardens on health, economics, environment and social well-being, aligning with previous studies.
