Getting hands dirty

When living in a built up city, we are hardly exposed to nature. We hardly get our hands dirty.

We are thankful that No.2’s kindergarten includes gardening in their curriculum.

I feel that it is important to be surrounded by greenery. And what better way to do that is to grow small plants. Getting our hands dirty from touching soil feels oddly therapeutic.

Somehow, I feel that architects should consider planters at cooridoors for new HDB flats. At least, this would be safer than occupants having to think of makeshift ways to have pots placed along the corridors.

We need to give back not only to society and also to nature.

Join us by starting a small urban garden right outside your doorstep or in your balcony.
