We teach Organic Farming & Environmental Sustainability workshops for schools, companies and organisations. Our programs are taught by Fai Hui, a Royal Horticulture Society certified grower, IFOAM organic inspector  and rooftop farming specialist.

Our programs emphasize hands-on activities such as:

  • Making Seedlings
  • Planting & Harvesting Vegetables
  • Upcycling

  • Taking Horticultural Tours of Seasonal Crops
  • Experiencing Herbs
  • Educational Games

Participants learn about:

  • Growing Vegetables & Healthy Eating
