1-Day Home-Grown Organic Vegetables for Domestic Helpers HANDS-ON
Growing Nourishing Vegetables Successfully
Using Organic Methods
Step-By-Step Explanation. Green Fingers Assured
It is everyone’s dream to grow an edible garden in their own home. HOWEVER most home-owners in Singapore have avoided or given up growing altogether. If you are one of them, you might be facing one or more of the following challenges:
I don’t have the time.
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.
Even if I delegate our home garden to my Domestic Helper, I need to Learn first and Teach her.
I had thought that my kampong-raised Helper could grow something, somehow she couldn’t.
What if you don’t have to learn anything, simply have your Helper trained us, by the expert !
We heard of many stories of talented Helpers with green fingers, and the family are enjoying a flourishing organic garden (or a small corridor garden), with continuous supply of Nutritious Vegetables, very exciting activities for the entire family. Blessed are the families with such capable Domestic Helpers. Imagine seeing how excited the kids and the grandmas will be : everyone watching the vegetables growing before their very eyes.
