We all have that one adventurous neighbour who makes the task of growing fruits and vegetables look like child's play. If you’ve always been curious as to how some of them manage to take things to the next level by making a green room out of their backyards or HDB corridors, here's one event that will put you on the path to your own home garden project.
All things horticultural await you at the GreenUrbanScape Asia 2017 Marketplace. On top of an organic food and lifestyle market with tons for you to bag home, you'll also find a whole bunch of engaging activities like free talks and wellness workshops among others!
Here’s what you can expect to do at this event for gardeners and non-gardeners alike:
1. Stock up on organic food and wellness products
All things honey-related from Go Pure
It’s only natural for most of us to have flashbacks of our mothers perpetually feeding us with Brand’s Essence of Chicken whenever the topic of ‘supplements’ comes about. But Go Pure flips this notion with an old-fashioned remedy that not all of us know, but are bound to love: honey.
With raw organic honey, you can combat almost every illness imaginable from common colds and the flu to more serious ailments like high cholesterol, insomnia and low immunity.

Not only do they sell organic, raw honey blends like Watercress and Eucalyptus, but they also offer a wide range of cosmetic products from their Manuka’s Cosmet collection. And if you’re prone to sinus infections, you should check out their Propolis Nasal Sprays ($45).
Tip: Mix honey with cold or lukewarm water only, do not use boiling water as the heat will destroy the vitamins and enzymes in the honey.
