Basics of Kitchen Gardening

August 2 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

We are living in a world where foods are heavily spiked with pesticides. What used to be our medicine, is now often harmful for us and our loved ones. In the face of the COVID 19 pandemic and in the longer run, it has become necessary to take back control of our food.

Take the first step towards it by planting our own herbs and vegetables (even if they are in meger quantity).

Edible Routes brings you a vegetable gardening workshop. Learn how to start and maintain your home kitchen garden with us. This workshop is for you if you are a beginner and simply want to explore your green thumb or you have a thriving kitchen garden and want some expert tips!

You will understand the important components of kitchen gardening – soil preparation, planting, watering, harvesting techniques and more.

Key takeaways:

– Importance of growing one’s own food (even in a small quantity)
