Pavilion’s edible garden has been selected by The Nature Company for a 6-month sponsorship and technical guidance programme. It is an honour for us to be selected :) For the programme to work, they gave us a criterion: the neighbours need to come together to learn, work & play together at the garden as a large, committed group.
One of the things they decided to focus on is getting an auto irrigation system set-up in the garden before our garden launch this Sunday.
There-in lies the first challenge. The garden didn’t have its own water supply as yet! It was only in the last week that we finally had a water tap installed in the park. The minute the tap was installed, plans for setting up the auto irrigation system were made.
An irrigation setup team from HKS Engineering (which partners Nature Company in sponsoring irrigation products) started working on piping the entire garden from the new water point today.
They re-assured us that over this 6-month period, they will try their best to train up our neighbours so that we know how to maintain and trouble-shoot the system ourselves.
