Roof top gardening


There is an increasing awareness today about the importance of fresh fruits and vegetables to build immunity and good health, as well as about the harm that chemical fertilisers and pesticides do to our health as well as to the health of the land.

The vegetables and fruits in the market look bright and shiny but we have no way of knowing what chemicals make them look attractive. Processed foods boast of ‘added nutrients’, but how nutritious can dead packaged food be? Gardening at home is a great way to help everyone at home to learn about the goodness of fresh foods – especially children who’s contact with nature is minimal in cities.
