Strawberry Project started because we wanted to harvest our own strawberries at home.

In a tropical zone Singapore’s apartment.

As a mom, I like to fulfill their dreams and be engaged in projects to research and explored together. I hope this journal will also help the kids remembered their great childhood and be able to share this with their own children when they are grown up!

We had a wonderful time growing our strawberries, met many new friends and cherished all our experiences while sharing this learning journey.
