Ladybugs are great insects in the organic farm. They play a major role in balancing the eco system in your garden.

Sad to say, farms that does not actively apply organic farming principles made use of chemical pesticides, which could kill these ladybugs.

In our research garden, we do not use any chemical pesticides, and we create a balance eco system, which allow ladybugs to come and feed on other harmful pest such as aphids.


At The Living Centre, we spent alot of our time conducting trials of varieties of high value crops to grow in Singapore.
This is one of our on-going observation of a special variety of melon. We have been growing melons for a long time, but we always wanted to try new varieties that have better traits.
Many growers in Singapore faced problems with low yield and weak plants, which is often a result of inadequate plant nutrition and poor soil conditions. Weak plants often result in flowers aborting off the plants.

In the video below, we show our healthy melon plant with successful pollination at about slightly over a week old, with harvest estimated in about 3 weeks time.
