In the first installment of this unique Farm-to-Table Self-Care Workshop series, we explore Singapore's seasonal changes this November, first with its recent increased rainfall, cooler temperatures and the importance of priming our bodies for the upcoming festivities.
Featuring a group of plants that improve our immunity, with their extra loading of phytonutrients and anti-inflammatory characteristics, we will discuss their therapeutic benefits, and show you how you can grow some of them easily at home, and most importantly, how you can cook and eat them for the maintenance of good health.

About This Series
Our Farm-to-Table Self-Care Workshop series is a monthly look into different groups of herbs, spices, flowers, fruits and vegetables that provide our bodies with utmost healing and care.
We incorporate plant-based knowledge into our curriculum and borrow wisdom from the ancient practices of Ayurveda, Herbalism and Naturopathy focusing on plants' therapeutic benefits.
Each month, we feature a group of power plants that are symbolic of the seasons we're in - from weather changes, life's seasons, festivities to occasions. For example, January heralds new beginnings always, whether with dietary or life goals, and it also marks the peak of Singapore's coldest temperatures, bringing about the need to keep the body balanced and warm with the help of roots, seeds and spices.
These power plants have been chosen for their outstanding ability to improve our immunity, due to their extra loading of phytonutrients and anti-inflammatory characteristics.
You will learn the importance of each plant group, its therapeutic benefits, how you can grow them, and harness the powers from each of them into your daily diets.
Our workshops are comprised of two parts -
We will teach you how to grow the plants, and how you can maintain them in your urban spaces - homes and offices.
You will learn how to cook the plants you've grown and harvested in this cooking demo segment. Let your senses come alive with the tasty and therapeutic dishes you'll get to sample. All our recipes are easy to follow, ingredients are accessible and most importantly, healing.
