The crash course combines both Moon Gardening Level I and Level II. Transitioning into second half of year, it is essential to reconnect the Self with Nature, asking support and guidance from Mother Gaia, whether to reaffirm your resolutions or even to kick start any new projects.
The existence of plants are here to support the growth of Earth, as an important source of food, energy and healing properties to many beings on Earth. In the web of life, not only Sun that plays an important role in the growth of Nature, Moon and Zodiacal constellations are also contributing to the evolution of Earth; and all of these can be observed from the life in Plant kingdom. As one of the oldest alchemist on Earth, they carried the intelligence of the nature four elements (earth/ roots, water, fire/ warmth, air/ light).
Not to forget the elemental beings from Elemental kingdom, different elements are supported by the fundamental four different groups of elemental beings. The nature of four elements exist in everything and everywhere; they are the basis of all life to be manifested on earth.

“The ultimate goal of farming is not the growing of crops, but the cultivation and perfection of human beings” –
About the Workshop Facilitator, Khim Joe
Khim Joe started her journey working with plants in the year 2007 when she was pursuing her undergraduate degree in the field of Landscape Architecture. She attended her first Permaculture Design Course in 2010 and the experience changes her view on life since then. Graduating from university, she started her career as horticulturist in a local developer maintaining and managing indoor and outdoor landscape.
After 3 years of exploring in landscape operation and management fields, she decided to further expand her vision in landscape consultancy field. During the 2 years of working in consultancy firm, struggling between the choices of fulfilling the needs of society in commercial landscape and her own sense of fulfillment, she decided to quit from working in commercial landscape consultancy firm and joined a social enterprise promoting urban farming movement. There she started to gain clarity in what she wants to focus on.
As a profession, she is a Permaculture Landscape Architect. It seems to her that many of issues that exist today is a result of the lost connection with Nature. She felt it very strongly that the existence of nature spirits, plants and the elemental beings are here to support the growth of humanity. In 2017, she founded Children of Soil for this purpose.
Her works involve working with Gaia’s consciousness, especially the plants and elementals kingdom to uplift a given space, thus invoking the self-healing ability within the given space. She also focus on using plants as food medicine to promote individuals’ well being physically and spiritually. She is currently exploring bio-dynamic farming and natural way of farming with the passion to revitalize the soil through growing food for all. Working with Nature helps to attune our self back to our Nature self
