Let community gardens bloom

Let community gardens bloom
Community gardening seen as a means of social integration
By Hoe Pei Shan

COMMUNITY gardening can mean much more than merely planting trees in public places.

In multicultural, multiracial cities such as Singapore, it also helps to bring the community closer together.

The bonding effect of community gardening was highlighted to 230 participants at the Creating Liveable Cities Through Community Gardens seminar at Orchard Parade Hotel yesterday.

Part of the seminar series this year by the Centre for Urban Greenery and Ecology (CUGE), the event was the first of its kind on community gardening.

CUGE is jointly established by the National Parks Board (NParks) and the Workforce Development Agency.

With 390 local community gardening groups emerging in just five years, gardening has become a means of social integration, learning and community building.

Gardening wannabes can check out http://www.nparks.gov.sg and download their Android app. Useful when one is a greenthumb or a bird watcher or bug catcher.
