Tuesday, August 9, 2011
A GIDDY group enjoyed herb gardening and cooking last weekend.
Fifteen participants were taught the importance of organic gardening and the delectable joys of preparing easy recipes using the tasteful ingredients.
Benguet State University expert Dr. Jose Balaoing lectured on how to properly grow herbs at your backyard with an actual demo delighting the crowd.
Balaoing emphasized the importance of healthier ways of eating vegetables as well as the benefits of going organic.
Baguio first lady Becky Domogan led the group of participants with Auring and Des Bautista and K-Light executive Letlet Dela Cruz other participants were housewives and chefs in waiting, mostly a group of resto owners wanting to have a healthier menu on their roster.
The crowd enjoyed the afternoon of planting herbs of their choice and learning how to prepare them in the cooking demo which came promptly afterward.
Mothers Garden at Upper Fairview Road Quezon HIll Proper is offering a series home and backyard gardening seminars aimed to help cooks and budding enthusiasts to learn to plant their own herbs and at the same time learn how to cook with it as well.
The just concluded garden workshop on gardening and cooking is a first of a series of seminars on culinary arts blended with natural ingredients and fine cooking.
Owner, Therese Jison is prepared a host of recipes using the herbs in easy to do meal courses.
The 2,000-square-meter lot in Upper Fairview, Quezon Hill Proper is embarking on a mission to teach and encourage everyone to take practical gardening to heart.
The World Wide Web defines organic gardening as not using synthetic products, including pesticides and fertilizers which Mothers Garden is an advocate of.
Ideally, organic gardening replenishes the resources as it makes use of them. Like feeding depleted soil with composted plants, or planting legumes to add nitrogen to an area that had been planted with heavy feeder. The bigger picture involves working in cooperation with nature, viewing your garden as a small part of all the natural system.
