This mystical edible plant garden did not appear overnight in a high-rise city condo. Evangeline had taken the initiative after moving from a landed house to the condo a few years back. She realised that the restricted space has challenged many people in urban areas to grow their own food and even have the fear of trying to do so. Hence, she took in the challenge and made it possible through experimenting with different plants and techniques.
