For more than a year now, the prevailing health situation that has caused anxiety among Filipinos has also served to remind us what matters most – our families’ security, health, and wellness. Recalibrating our priorities to ensure our continued well-being, we turn to cultivate a life that is aligned with nature. Where pursuing what is essential means growing what our family loves to eat best.

At The Grove at Plantation Hills in Tagaytay Highlands, one can surround their modern Garden Lot farmhouse with fresh produce grown from its own natural green space. Here, every day is a simple farm-to-table lifestyle. Without the senseless distractions we used to engage in, we discover the joys and benefits of vegetable gardening. 

We are stoked just thinking about it: homegrown produce such as fruit and vegetables are often healthier, more accessible, and free of chemicals and pesticides. As we are stuck at home for long stretches of time, the idea of tending to and sustaining a home garden that yields the veggies we need every day is an incredibly attractive one. 

And if we are fortunate to have sizeable green spaces around our homes, growing our own produce to share or to sell totally means self-sufficiency in food for the long haul—no matter what happens outside. 

The Grove at Plantation Hills, with a 22-hectare land area, is a leisure residential and farming concept-in-one that brings the joy of eco-farming right at one’s backyard. Owning a modern primary home while nurturing one’s own green space with herbs and vegetables is now possible with The Grove’s Garden Lots. 

Ranging from 450 to 600 square meters, Garden Lots are designed to encourage homeowners—from novice gardeners to seasoned plantitos and plantitas—to indulge in eco-farming right in their own backyards. 

An increasingly popular trend among self-sufficient Filipinos is growing their own food, which has become essential at The Grove at Plantation Hills’ Garden Lots.

This means that there will be ample space to grow produce for a whole family’s daily supply—and a reasonably short time between sowing and harvesting. In a span of just weeks, home gardeners can savor real farm-to-table freshness—leafy greens for their salads and sautéed veggie dishes; fresh tomatoes for their pasta sauce; and freshly harvested root crops for their favorite soups and stews. 

Garden structures such as a trellis or tuteur add a decorative flourish to any home, as homegrown produce such as fruit and vegetables are also often healthier, more accessible, and free of chemicals and pesticides. 

Settling down in a Garden Lot home, would-be residents are inspired to forge a community that flourishes with healthy, sustainable living—with all the fine attributes that make families, and not just plants, bloom and grow.
