Harshad and Vivek together have done masters in Botany (Plant Sciences) from St. Xaviers College, Mumbai in 2008. Their specialization was Angiosperms (flowering plants) & phytochemistry. Here they studied the world of plants through pure scientific lenses. They were fortunate to get exposed to the greatest botanical literature, extensive field experience and a wealth of knowledge from some of the best faculties around. Further down the line, Harshad cleared UGC-Maharashtra SET exams in life sciences and served as a lecturer in Botany at Elphinstone College, Mumbai for four years; while Vivek successfully ran his own private coaching classes. During the botanical days, Harshad and Vivek consistently volunteered or participated in environmental and Nature Education projects/ events. Getting a formal education in mainstream classical science has indeed an advantage of having crystal clear basic concepts and also it has laid a solid foundation for any future endeavours involving plants.
