When you find yourself cooking with plenty of fresh herbs, it might be useful for you to start your own garden.
If you can keep a houseplant alive, you can sustain a herb garden.
It is not as hard as it sounds. All you need are the right pots, materials, and a plan. So whether you are a home cook or a serious foodie, growing your own herbs can be beneficial.
We spoke to Renshia Manuel who is the founder of Growbox, a social entrepreneurship company that manufactures portable grow boxes made from recycled pallets for people living in disadvantaged areas to grow vegetables sustainably, on how you can grow your own herbs at home.
Manuel said herb gardening can inspire you to make better choices about what you put on your plate. She said when you grow your own herbs, you savour it more because of the effort it took to get it to the table.
