Herbs Workshop

Have you bought herbs from the supermarket for your cooking, only to use less than half of the packet you paid for? Dreamt of picking fresh herbs straight from your balcony like they do in cooking shows? How about growing these herbs yourself?

Many of us feel daunted by the idea of indoor farming because we think it is impossible to do so in the high-rise buildings we live in given its limited floor space and lighting. However, you do not need a large plot of land in a community garden or a backyard to create your own indoor herb garden.
