4. Growing Organic Vegetables Using Soil & Soil-Less Method

There seems to be a new and wonderful trend spreading around Singapore. It is heartwarming to see more people getting interested in Growing their Own Food at home. While the majority of our students used to be Senior Citizens or Retirees, lately we begin seeing more young career people signing up for our Organic Gardening Workshops. Many would prefer moving towards the ‘Organic Soil-Based Growing’ direction, while others would prefer trying the High-Tech Soil-Less ways. Regardless of the methods, the real challenge for every new gardener starts in the beginning.
