Let’s Dig, Sow and Grow



Let’s Dig, Sow and Grow is an urban gardening programme designed to help your child start their own kitchen garden. Here’s your chance to learn from our food growing journey at the Good Garden.

Facilitated and designed by our Permaculture Design partners Cultivate Central, your child will learn how to nurture a healthy, abundant and compact kitchen garden. From creating good soil to composting, working with worms to planting herbs and leafy greens, we will share our experience and tips. All activities will be designed so that kids can participate and contribute meaningfully.

Join us for this programme and encourage a grow your own culture at home. We believe children who explore gardening and growing food will not only make healthy food choices but also connect, gain ideas and inspiration from nature.
