人類依賴植物而生存,關係密不可分。植物為我們提供氧氣、食物、提供一切生活所需。時至今日,身處都市的我們不需再耕種,商業模式的改變,使都市人接觸植物的動機減少。然而,植物為我們帶來的好處實在多不勝數。

自然地,以推廣種植、宣揚植物好處作為目標,希望把與植物相關的知識、應用融入在不同的設計之中,提升人們接觸、種植植物的動機,讓人們自然地感受、體驗植物為我們帶來的各種好處。
Human beings rely on plants for survival, which is an inseparable relationship. Plants provide oxygen, food, and everything for us in life. Nowadays, we don’t need to cultivate like a farmer anymore. As the business model changes, urban people are less motivated to interact with plants. However, there are numerous benefits of plants for human beings.

NATURAL DAYS, is hoped that the plant-related knowledge and application can blend into different design approaches to promote human-plant interaction and plant motives. So that people can naturally feel and experience a variety of benefits that plants bring to us.
