Even before the government ordered an enhanced community quarantine, people are obsessing over indoor plants. And why wouldn’t they be? Taking care of plants is therapeutic, some even do it for a hobby as a stress reliever. This activity could be emotionally rewarding and enjoyable. Now, tending for plants can be useful for anxiety.
Assembly Grounds at The Rise in Makati enables mall guests to get into this fun pastime through Gardening 101 with Jennie Agcaoili, an online series about growing plants while living in the city. With three 45-minute episodes, Jennie Agcaoili, nature therapy advocate and founder of creative nature business Plant Project PH, shows people how to make the most out of their quarantine time through gardening.
#AGGardening101 kicks off on April 18 with Urban Gardening Essentials, a beginner course about the basics of raising an urban garden. On April 25, kids and parents can enjoy some quality time together with Urban Gardening for Kids, a session that will bring out every child’s green thumb. On May 2, Jennie teaches everyone how to grow plants out of their leftovers with Re-growing from Kitchen Scraps.
All of these episodes can be streamed on Assembly Grounds’ Facebook page every 4pm.
Let’s grow #BetterStrongerTogether by learning new things and staying productive this quarantine period.
