FAQ:

(1) Is the online course just watching videos?

No. It is so much more than that!
The online live course takes place on 16 May 2020 , Saturday from 2 PM to 4.30 PM.
The trainer will teach you "live", with interactions, discussions, you get to ask questions too! 


(2) Why should I join an online course if there are so many YouTube videos free online?
Most online videos are created by growers in overseas whose climate conditions and seasons are very different from Singapore. What is applicable in their settings may not be applicable here in Singapore. Most of them also focuses on bite-sized 5 to 10 mins video - which often makes you difficult to understand and learn the overall skills of a home grower.

In fact, we have trained so many growers in Singapore and from over 14 countries , because growers are often confused by so many techniques they learnt from various non-research based sources. Our curriculum is science-based agricultural and gardening concepts based on research, not gardening myths. 

Secondly, our curriculum are carefully designed by our Founder, Ms Faith Foo - she has purposely designed the course flow in such a way that makes learning in a structured and engaging for you. 


(3) Is the trainer good?
Ms Faith Foo has trained people in Singapore and from over 14 countries in applications of commercial farming, community and home gardening. She has also been invited as a key speaker at various key gardening events in Singapore such as Singapore Gardening Festival organised by Hort Park. She also works as a consultant for commercial farms. She is also involved in training local polytechnic lecturers who in turn train next generation of growers to enter the agricultural industry.

Yes! We will train you how to be a smart and informed shopper! So that you do not get confused by the product offerings at commercial shops.
