Keen to join the gardening movement in Singapore? If you wish to start a microgreen garden at home or learn about urban farming, join us for a healthy, fun-filled Saturday on the roof terrace of the National Design Centre (NDC).

Community gardens and urban farming projects are taking place in various neighbourhoods across Singapore. Join members of community garden projects and local champions of the Grow-Your-Own-Food movement as they share their initiatives, and tips on gardening and sustainability.  

Learn to make a compost bin from TANAH; listen to stories on how home and community gardens are changing the foodscape from Foodscape Collective; share the joy of Goldhill NC Community Garden members as they present their efforts in tending to a community garden for over nine years.

So bring your microgreens, slap on some suncreen, wear a hat and join us up on the NDC roof for this demo and hands-on session. Let’s love and eat fresh greens!

About Foodscape Collective

Foodscape Collective is a community centred on growing food well, cooking, eating and living well. It brings these questions, individuals and practices together through its focus on learning and citizen research. Within the community, some grow food, some choose to cook and eat better meals, others bring food to where it is needed, tackle surplus food or food waste issues, or simply want to tell the stories of our foodscape better. The community envisions growing more compassionate and resilient networks for our local food ecosystem, and explores better approaches to food and sustainability.

About Goldhill NC Community Garden

Community in Bloom (CIB) is a nationwide gardening movement started by the National Parks Board (NParks) in May 2005, to encourage community farming in public and private housing estates, educational institutions, hospitals, welfare homes as well as organisations.

The Moulmein Goldhill Neighbourhood Committee Garden was started in 2008 under the CIB Scheme. The garden sits on a 465 sqm vacant plot, located at the end of Goldhill Avenue, andis managed by a 50-member strong Goldhill Gardening Club, made up of residents living in thearea. It was the first community garden set up on state land in a private housing estate. The club holds regular harvest parties and the community garden has become a platform for residents to meet and connect with neighbours.

Since 2010, The Moulmein Goldhill NC Garden has received numerous CIB awards.
