指点健康 爱上园艺一举多得

早报 现在版 Zaobao NOW (2017 Oct 10)

As part of an article on the increasing trend of Singaporeans learning how to do gardening, a reporter interviewed a few of our workshop participants and even came to sit in at one of our “Grow Your Own Organic Herbs & Spices” workshops.

Mdm Tan, shown in the main photograph, attended our “Hands-on Home-Grown Organic Vegetables” workshop in 2016. She credits our top trainer, Joanne Ng (黄瑞芳), with teaching her the fundamentals of gardening while delivering the knowledge in an interesting way. This gave her enough confidence to turn her home garden into her experimental gardening playground within a year!

Mr Yang (educator, 37 years old), an attendee of our Herb & Spices workshop, said that through learning organic gardening, he hopes to lead a sustainable lifestyle and be able to feel the joy of gardening even while living in a modern urban city.

Two other attendees, the Chua sisters, recounted how they were influenced by their mother from a young age to love all things gardening. The younger sibling shared her love of cooking and how she looks forward to cooking healthy meals for her family with the herbs she will be growing at home.

The elder sister related how gardening helped her overcome the grief of her recent loss of a beloved pet Shih Tzu. A HDB resident, she said that going through the daily routine of watering and trimming her herbs and bonzai plants provides a soothing effect and helps lift up her spirits.
