Women4Green Impact Series #6: Eat, Grow, Love

On 10 May 2019, over 80 of these ladies attended the sixth W4G Impact Series at the Singapore Sustainability Academy. Titled Eat, Grow, Love, a play on Elizabeth Gilbert’s famous novel, this event featured tips on living and eating well in an urban environment, sustainable wining and dining, as well as spirited discussions on low-carbon diets, urban farming and foraging for edibles in the wild.

The three passionate speakers were:

  • Chow Pee Yee, Principle Dietitian from Khoo Tech Paut Hospital
  • Olivia Choong, Founder of Green Drinks Singapore
  • Nithiya Laila, Culinary Anthropologist and host of Edible Wild on Channel News Asia

The evening ended with a hands-on tea making session by Nithiya, using a combination of local herbs and plants like blue pea flower, lemongrass and roselle.
