Gardening – a hobby which is disappearing in Mauritius


The lifestyle of Mauritians is evolving. Remember, for those who can remember, how life was easy going some twenty years back, your parents were there taking care of their poultry andtheir garden…this time is and will remain in our memories, and the new generations now have everything ready-made, flats are flourishing here and there, and life is more hectic…there is no time to even think of growing something in the garden…instead if you who are like 18-30 years old indeed do so, you will have the old fashioned tag…well, gardening is in fact such a nice but forlorn leisure which would be interesting to revive through garden clubs and the like…gardening brings one close to nature, exerts physically and is self fulfilling…the idea of playing with mud often scares the youth as they often forget that without Mother Earth they would not even be there…

    young generations are getting everything too easily and do not know the value of mother earth from which GOD gives us everything (e.g food,petrol,all kind of metals etc)

    I think those young people today will come back to gardening in later life.
