New initiative to share excess harvest

ST, 2 Apr 2017, New initiative to share excess harvest

{Extract}

We thank Miss Lee Kay Yan for her feedback (A little foraging for fruit and plants won’t hurt; March 28).

In early March, the National Parks Board started an initiative to share excess harvest with the public, as part of efforts to reduce horticultural waste.

Termed “Harvest Corner”, extra herbs and horticulture material generated from gardening sessions by volunteers are gathered and made available to members of the public.

This pilot project, which began in the Spice Garden at Fort Canning Park and will continue to run every Friday, has seen positive response from park visitors.

Members of the public who wish to learn more about our flora in Singapore can also download our DIY walks e-guides.
