The Secrets Of Growing Organic Vegetables

Over the years,  we are seeing more and more people signing up for our Growing Organic Vegetable workshops.   People are going toward the ‘Organic LifeStyle’ direction.   Lately,  we not only have Senior Citizens and Retirees in our classes, but we are also seeing many young career people signing up to learn how to grow Organic Vegetables,  they want to catch up with this growing market trend.   Corporations are also starting to request for gardening workshops for their department staff.
Most Singaporeans know this,  it is not easy to grow anything somehow.  You may be one of them,  facing one or more of the following challenges:
  • How do I start? What kind of soil should I use?
  • I don’t have green fingers. I am a plant killer!
  • I am new to gardening, what is the easiest plant to grow?
  • I can’t find any good gardening advice. Everything I tried seems to fail.
There are many more challenges in the garden,  most people usually give up.   Sometimes people would become desperate for a tip or two, yearning for basic advice on how to keep their plants alive.   Most people would need step-by-step guidance from an experienced Gardener who’s been there and done that.
Wouldn’t it be good if you could grow a flourishing organic garden with an endless supply of Nutritious Vegetables?

YES,  YOU CAN !       

With the simple practical tips from Gardens With Purpose,  you really can.   We have many success stories to share.
