“A natural ecological garden should consist of bees and birds”
– Mr. Khor Kim Huat
Mr. Khor Kim Huat is the founder of Fragrance Nursery in Cameron Highlands. He is one of the eco-planting growers who have successfully obtained the Baba Insight certification.
Two years ago, when Mr. Khor started his eco-planting venture, he asked himself, “Do we really need a pesticide-free plant?” He realised that, in fact, it is the environment that needs it.
After not applying chemical pesticides for a while, Mr. Khor’s farm began to appeal more to the bees and birds. He commented that this is the ecological balance that the environment should have. Mr. Khor is able to let his children play at the farm with ease too. Although he has faced a lot of problems with pests, he is determined to solve them with natural remedies. By going natural, the resistance of the plants will also be stronger and they will be able to grow unrestricted within a healthy and clean environment.
Eco-planting not only protects our health, but also the ecology and environment.
