The Herb Garden Project

This is to invite you to enrol for a rare and unique workshop/Project for schools and colleges on  a Herb Garden  and Wealth from Weeds.

In a time when unseen by our very own eyes, pesticides find their way into our bodies through food we eat, an inevitable cycle of unhealthy consumption and resultant ailments begins. Have we traded our health and that of our children to the convenience of readymade, processed, and often junk food? It is with a will to find and share simple inexpensive solutions to this problem, that we have devised a workshop for our children

The workshop will be conducted using hands on experience to learn and keep alive a dying knowledge system.

Would you like to be part of the problem or the solution?
Would you like to equip yourself with natural and easy ways to better health?
Would you like to truly enrich your children’s lives?

If yes is your answer to any or all of the above, then this workshop is for you.
