We will begin our course with an in-depth understanding of the soil(what it is, the correct pH, nutrients and living organisms present and soil preparation). Just like in life, being at the right place at the right time is important, so is choosing the right area to plant those seeds! You have got to consider the sun, wind and water. Should my sapling stay in the pot or should I plant in the ground? Come learn the dos and don’t of gardening!

I live in California Bay Area, where I enjoy the warm climate that is suitable to grow some of the tropical plants. I spent my childhood in a village in a tropical country (Sri Lanka) and I had plenty of opportunity to learn gardening from my parents and grandparents. After I moved to the US, I rediscovered my passion for gardening, and started with balcony gardening. The passion slowly turned into experimental science as well. Now, I continue to explore different forms and scales of gardening and enjoy the abundance of nature.
