Or you already have some experience and want to establish a viable, sustainable garden to grow good food or simply enjoy nature’s offerings.
Whether you have access to 6 to 8 hours of direct sunlight, 4 hours of indirect sunlight, even shaded corners in your HDB flat/apartment/landed property, at the end of the course, you will have the confidence to start growing and eating from your own garden.
