Resolved to eat healthy this new year? Grow your own organic garden and make sure you succeed!
I was told that tomatoes are one of the easiest vegetables to grow at home. “Just toss some seeds in the soil and water them regularly,” they said. To my dismay, this “easy” method did not work at all. The seeds never saw the light of day (quite literally) and when I shared this with my friends, they pointed out that it wasn’t the correct season to sow tomato. So much for easy gardening.
Gardening can certainly be rewarding and peaceful if you know the right techniques and a proper understanding of the needs of the plants. So if you want to learn the correct methods to nurture your plants to healthy life then we have the perfect workshop for you. Join us in Mumbai to complete an organic kitchen gardening course over the weekend.
