How to Grow Your Own High-rise

Time: 2pm – 2.45pm

Microgreens and leafy vegetables are popular edible plants among Singaporeans. Space is often a constraint for high-rise dwellers here, and microgreens and leafy vegetables are most suited for such confined areas. They are quick to grow and a sizeable harvest can be obtained from a small space. Join us in this gardening talk where Jack Yam shares with us his knowledge on how this can be done on your balcony or corridor. You can also hear from him the benefits of bringing together people, such as, your neighbours, to participate in an enjoyable collective effort to grow edibles in your living space.

Gardening Q&A (November)

Time: 3pm – 3.45pm

Have issues growing plants in your garden? Join us in this virtual meeting to get them answered by our in-house horticulturist, Dr Wilson Wong. This session will be run monthly during Bazaar in the Garden.
