Yeayy to Green Fingers!




Green fingers they say - where you can keep your plants alive and good at making plants grow. But how true is this? I do believe in knowing the right techniques can keep your plants grow and alive and I've always wanted to learn how to grow plants healthily and how to home farming from someone who is a pro at doing so. I hope one day I can grow my own veggies and fruits from my small little farm to ensure I consume fresh and healthy produces. 

Luckily, I met James, the founder of Uniworco Enterprise and Jesslyn, the edible garden consultant. They are two incredible and a humble couple with fantastic business initiatives. Uniworco promotes edible garden through organic gardening and home farming to anyone out there who are concerned and want to grow your own healthy and clean food. Best of all, you don't have to wait till you own a farm to grow your own food, you can grow them in your balcony, garden or yard, today! We know that the best food is to grow our  own food with our own hands right? You know they are fresh, and most importantly, they grow without chemicals and free from pesticides and dangerous and unwanted substances, which prevents us from being ill. 

Uniworco focuses on creating public awareness by sharing, how can you grow your own organic edible garden. Besides that, in the long run, Uniworco aims to do home farming in a large scale  which we can have urban/community farms in the cities in Malaysia so that we can get to consume healthy clean food be it rich or poor. In this light, we can recruit those who need to work on the farm and provide more job opportunities and at the same time can develop them with the right skills of home farming. Some portion can be distributed to the underprivileged. Uniworco is one of MAGIC SE from Cohort 01 - Social Enterprise that focuses on this noble effort, if not them, who? If not now, when? 

With Uniworco, home farming is simple, easy, portable, interesting and manageable. Fret not, if you have zero or little knowledge of home farming or how to grow fresh produces from your garden or backyard, Uniworco is the answer.

For me and hubby, as a start, we want to know how to germinate vegetables using the right techniques. Once we learn the right skills, we can start our home farming slowly. We attended their workshop on "How to germinate vegetables using the right techniques" and amazingly we learned a lot of things from theory, the demos and especially the hands on session! Great stuff is materials are provided and not just that, we get to take home 4 pots of vegetables, which two of the pots we have germinated are Hong Kong Sawi and another two pots are Bayam Merah which are organically grown baby veggies that we need to care once we're back. We also get to taste their special tea from their organically grown fresh produces. the ones we tried are mulberry tea and soursop tea. It tasted fresh and on point. Plus point, we even get certificates, cool! :D

We had so much fun and earned many insightful information during the session. Here are some notes that I took during the workshop for you guys to understand a little bit about germinating your veggies.
