grow your own grub

 
a little farm on the hill 


Hello

Spring has sprung and it's time to get out into the garden! Ok, so we're in the tropics and it's not the spring of budding trees, daffodils and the first birdsong. But it is the end of the rainy season and everything at the farm is starting to grow beautifully again.

So join us for a one day practical introduction to home gardening at our organic farm, only 40 minutes drive from KL. This workshop will be run by our friend, gardening and compost buff, Harbir Gill. It is designed for anyone who is interested to get started in growing fresh vegetables and herbs in their garden or on their apartment balcony or anyone who has already been bitten by the gardening bug but wants to see better results. 
The course is hands-on and will introduce you to the basic principles of natural gardening and all the benefits that come with it and you will leave with the knowledge to set up an instant home vegetable garden. The course starts at 9.30am and finishes at 4pm. Refreshments, lunch, course equipment and notes are included. All you need to bring are a sturdy pair of shoes, an open mind and willing hands.

Look forward to seeing you!
