This workshop was our effort to inspire people towards a healthier and greener tomorrow. We ingest a lot of harmful chemicals everyday consuming fruits & vegetables that are grown inorganically. This workshop was an introduction to different methods of growing, starting and maintaining kitchen gardens and easy ways to grow your own vegetables and herbs.
The workshop introduced different growing mediums, containers & supports required for different plants. It also provided an insight into various sowing methods, balancing plant nutrition, harvesting of produce, pest and disease management and how to get the most out of your green patch.
This workshop was the first of a series of workshops with the single motive to inspire people to a greener tomorrow.
We look forward to welcoming you to many more BLOOM BUDDY’S Learn to Grow Series! Happy Gardening!
