Growing Food in Pots, Organically

Workshop on growing various winter food plants in containers

Fed up of eating tired looking herbs and vegetables?

As urban spaces get more congested, our homes get progressively smaller and gardens become a luxury, growing food at home has to take a backseat. Or does it?
For many, the idea of growing food in pots seems either too difficult or too restrictive. But, in this practically-oriented workshop, Workshop Buffet and Green Essentials will show how you can manage to grow a fair bit of kitchen essentials and even most of your favourite vegetables in different kinds of containers. Learn how Chillies, Basil, Lemons, Brinjals, Tomatoes, Gourds, Beans, Lettuce and others can thrive in your balconies throughout the year.
