The pandemic has spark new habits, newfound hobbies and pastime. From baking to binge-watching, people seem to find ways to be more productive and self-sufficient.
One of the increasingly popular quarantine activities nowadays is gardening. With many still stuck in quarantine, people have begun to see the beauty in tending to indoor greenery and have turned to plants for comfort and a sense of calmness.
With this, SM Bulacan Malls in Marilao, San Jose Del Monte, Pulilan and Baliwag recently open green hub for plant parents looking for the best succulents, indoor and outdoor plants as well as gardening essentials. SM’s green hub houses ornamental, decorative plants, diverse array of flowers and crop seedlings. It is also a one stop shop for your gardening needs from potting soils, plant ties, organic compost, fertilizers, and decorative pots. These garden supplies make growing easier, successful and more enjoyable.
“The green hub is a project of SM to make gardening not just about beautifying homes but also about helping people to care for their mental and physical health during these trying times” shares SM City Marilao Mall Manager Emmanuel Gatmaitan.
Apart from being a one-stop-shop for gardening needs, the green hub likewise advocates to facilitate entrepreneurial opportunities for MSMEs who are affected by the pandemic. This campaign is rolled out to help shoppers find, discover, and support MSMEs and local businesses especially in the province.
SM City San Jose Del Monte Mall Manager Jose Mari Emmanuel Correa said that helping local businesses during time of crisis is worth cultivating. “Our reasons why we grow plants may vary, but what is more important is we support each other to weather-the-storm and get through the pandemic” he added.
