Weekends are best spent doing the things you love—from reading and watching movies to trying out different recipes and even sleeping! This October 8 and 9, treat yourself and the whole family to a special event that celebrates all things homegrown. Avida and Summit Media will host Homepossible: Homegrown—a two-day affair filled with workshops, talks, and fun activties.

Aside from going from one booth to another, you may want to get cozy in the RL House! You can spot it easily as it resembles a structure of a real home. Designed by interior designer Nikki Audine and completed with pieces from Match Contract Furniture, it's the perfect spot to get creative and enjoy crafts to be taught by our friends from Craft MNL. Can't wait for the weekend? Here are five more reasons why you need to invite your friends, too:
