During this pandemic, one way to destress ourselves is to find new hobbies that help calm our day. It can be baking, drawing, painting, redecorating a room, or being plant parent. Yes! I’m now in the stage where I want to collect indoor plants and redecorating my room.

I’m glad to share with you that SM City Davao opens The Greenery Plant Center (TGPC) in their parking area. It has a display of over 100 different sellers of garden favorites and indoor plants. This project is in partnership with Mindanao Garden Club Inc. (MGCI) and Pepsi Cola. It will be month-long fair featuring a wide range of ornamental plants including natural air purifiers like Snake, Philodendron, and Rubber plants.

Safety reminders welcome plant shoppers in The Greenery Plant Center.

Refresh your homes with ornamental plants.

Other items display

There are also succulents, herbs, fruit trees, perennials, fresh fruits, wooden furniture and other garden essentials like sacks of soil, clay pots, pebbles, white stones, and macrame plant hangers at the center of their display.

Ensure's safety protocols

The organizers assures that TGPC is covered with strict health protocols including the installation of yellow-colored directional mark to maintain one-way flow and establishment of sanitation stations as everyone's safety matters.

Plant shoppers are required to observe a meter-wide physical distance, wear face masks, and fill-up the logbook for easy contact tracing. There is also only one entrance and exit point, equipped with thermal scanners, foot bath and hand sanitizers.

“We want the people to know that we are putting the right order here as per health protocols set by the government,” says MGCI vice president Vicky C. Jimenez, sharing that this is now the ‘new normal’ kind of plant shopping.
